I knitted these mittens for a project called Afghans for Afghans! They were collecting 300 pairs of wool mittens to send over to Afghan. It's part of a project that the US does to show support to the Afghans. http://www.afghansforafghans.org/. They also send blakets, socks and other "warmup" items.
I knitted these from some left over Cascade 220 I had when I knitted my nieces their princess hats! They are made in a size small in wool so they will be nice and warm! I hope they warm the hands (and the heart) of a small child this winter!
