Last week I finished up a wee tiny pair of gloves, and mailed them to a special little girl.
Pattern: My own, based on a tracing of Ayda's hands
Yarn: Dale Baby Ull, 1 skein pink and 1 skein white
Needles: US 0 (my first project with needles this tiny!)
I first talked about this project a couple of months ago. Ayda's mother found my blog and I decided to knit her a special pair of gloves. Ayda has Symbrachydactyly, and she was born with tiny little fingertips in place of the last three fingers on her left hand. Her mother wanted her to have a pair of winter gloves that fit her and looked nice.
I heard back from Ayda's mother over the weekend, and the gloves fit! They're a little bit big, actually, which is perfect because we would like for them to last for the rest of this year and maybe next year. Ayda's mother said that she played on the playground with no problem of having gloves that were fit badly, and that they stayed on her hands the whole time. Ayda's message to me was: "I like stripes! I like pink!"
Me too, Ayda!
