Mittens that Bring Out the Animal in You

By Twistie

As the weather begins to turn colder (after about a week of delayed June in November around here, humph), my mind turns inevitably to ways of keeping warm. Yes, I’m a weather weenie. I’ve lived all my life within  a hundred miles of San Francisco, but not in the City itself, so I’ve been ridiculously spoilt. That means when the weather dips below a certain pitifully high point I get cold.


Mittens. Like these:

found at The Purl Bee. There’s even a matching hat for your stylin’ toddler.

But maybe you don’t want something as cute as bunny feet. Maybe you’d like something less cuddly…

Like these awesome felted jellyfish mittens from TECHknitting.

Have I mentioned how much I like jellyfishes? Because I do.

Or maybe you want something that’s both animalistic and geeky. How about these Linux Penguin mittens.

The binary code is supposed to say “I love you” over and over again, but I must admit my binary isn’t good enough to verify that. What I can verify is that I found them at Crafty Crafty, and they are kind of awesome.

Whatever warms your hands, if you make it bring out the animal in you it’s sure to be a hit.

    Those are adorable! I’ve never got the hang of felting though. Wool fibres can obviously tell whether I want them to contract or not, and then they do the opposite. had a pattern for some sweet duck-feet baby bootees recently.

    @MissPrism: Fibers can definitely be perverse little things, can’t they? I find myself wanting a pair of duck feet booties for me. Ducks have the most awesome feet ever.
