Quick Like a Bunny

I needed a quick gift for my nephew, who is coming to visit for Easter along with his two sisters. The girls are getting lovely shawls, but what kind of knit do you give to a thirteen-year-old boy?

How about some sporty, durable, fingerless mitts? I think these will fit the bill:

I couldn't be happier with how these turned out. I love to do plug and play knitting. They were started on Thursday evening and finished within 24 hours. I wrote up a rough pattern on Ravelry, in case you want to see how it was done.

I've also finished my mother-in-law's socks, so she'll be sporting some very bright feet on Easter Sunday:

That's it for obligatory knitting, now I'm off to play!


  1. The fingerless mitts are a great gift. I like the pattern and colours you picked and they knit up so quickly!

  2. I am always admiring others fingerless mitts and need to make a pair for myself. I will check out your pattern.
    Happy Easter Laurie :-)

  3. The mittens are awesome. Bet he loved 'em :-)

    Happy Easter!

  4. How did the gifts go over?
