the first pair. Now, where they live averages less than 20 nights a year with temps at or below freezing and no snow other than a rare dusting every few years so I'm not sure they'll get much use out of felted mittens but, hey, I heard on the news last week that they were experiencing a freeze with the nighttime temperature hitting 28º -- mittens may be just the thing they need! And I had a lot of fun making these. Plus, finally found a use for a pair of those leather buttons I can't resist stashing away.
