FO-More Alligator Mittens

It's interesting to knit something again that once took you forever. What a difference a year (or so) makes. I knitted M some of these last year for my Olympic Knitting project. This time around, the mittens were SUPER fast to knit.

I decided to use Plymouth Encore yarn as it's washable. I have noticed that it just doesn't hold it's shape as well as the Cascade 220 did.

I do like how I did the eyes on these mittens. I used two buttons - one large white one and a smaller black one. They are much more secure than the googly eyes on M's. I love googly eyes, but am pretty concerned they are too easy to pull off. Not good for 3 year olds. These mittens will be paired with the fair isle hat for my nephew.
