I finished up knitting a pair of mittens for one of the Grands last night. Simple mittens, Red Heart yarn using the pattern from Needlenook. It's a simple pattern with a thumb gusset, multiple sizes and easy to adjust for more sizes. I alternated a round of variegated with a round of solid and got a pair of tiger striped mittens! Pics and info on my blog(s) and at Ravelry.
