I'm knitting mittens for all the girls on my daughter's soccer team and would like to personalize them by adding their names to the outside of the mittens. Or even putting a soccer ball on the outside of the mitten. What is the easiest way to do this? Would I do it after the mittens are finished? Or would I work the design or lettering in as I knit? Thanks for any help you can provide!

Why not try to work in their numbers? Might be easier...you could either knit them in or do them in duplicate stitch later.

Thanks for the advise! I've never done the duplicate stitch - are there instructions on this site?
