Coolio!
Thanks! I've never mit knittens (what my mind said to me) either so you'd have my perspective, too. I'll get you a nice final photo.

I wish I had a kid to knit for! DH doesn't really wear mittens so I guess I'm out this round.

Oh, and so you can get your DPN's:

Gauge for kids/sports weight: 6sts./inch
Gauge for adult size/worsted weight: 4.5 sts./inch

pattern calls for gauge in stockinette, and ribbing done two sizes smaller.

I'd be happy to do the 4-6 year old ones. Was planning on making my granddaughter mittens anyway!

I can do the children's size 4-6 and have the yarn for the mittens. What size needles are you recommending?

Look at the first post. It looks like the only size left to test is the 8yrs-woman's small.
