"The Slacker Ravelympics" group challenged us to begin and end a project during the Olympics this year. This was my very small project, which I finished yesterday. Worn by (and made for) Byron, who wasn't happy to be a mitten model.

The bottoms can fold up if they're a bit long, and the 2x2 rib makes them quite stretchy. I find the cast on the least stretchy part, but they should fit for a while. The pompoms are just tied on. I told Linda she could just untie them on the inside if she liked, so I suspect she will. And here they are...
I just love that 4ply colored wool. There is too much red and green, but it's so bright and happy. These were fun to make, though they have a seam, which is probably not ideal for baby heads. Oh well... I hate DPN's! I will practice, Tara, because I am determined to try socks one day, but I just don't love DPN's much... not yet.
