Now, by the demand of my little boy who wanted to have his oven mitts to take his cheesy toast out of the toaster oven, I decided to adjust the very popular Happy Stripes Oven Mitts to fit kids. Here is the same wide-thumb mitt for your little chef in the same happy stripes. The mitts are one-handed in three sizes. By one-handed, we mean that you can put these oven mitts on left or right hands, so you never have to worry about grabbing the correct one. Like the larger versions that served as inspiration for these, the little chef oven mitts are designed to fit little people's hands. Begin with either the small, medium, or large size and take them out of the felting process frequently and try them on your little chef . . . when they fit, they are done.
The I-can-set-the-table-myself Placemats are perfect for helping little folks learn how to set the table. Make one placemat for the wee one or make them for the whole family. We've got them at every place at the table so Soma (my little boy whom you see on the cover) can start participating in the table-setting process each night at supper time. The placemats require intarsia, so if intarsia is new to you, this might be the perfect project because felt forgives some things that unfelted knitting does not. Make the mats in a solid color or happy stripes.
