Snails

I don't have any immediate plans for knitting mittens, but I can't get these out of my mind.
They're from the Knitter's Book of Yarn. I love the snails. I keep thinking they would be cute round the hem of a child's cardigan but a little girl might not like snails. Then again she might.

Those snails are seriously cute!
I'm not that far into the Knitters Book of Yarn, .... perhaps I'll be up for mittens again when I get there.

But why not on an adult's cardigan? They're subtle enough to be a secret joke that many folks wouldn't get. Why do kids get all the fun?

My six year old girl said they would be fine if they were pink snails.....

And I am totally smitten with these mittens because of the cuffs. Something about the bi-coloredness of them just sings to me.

Yup, I immediately fell in smit with those mittens upon seeing them. I'm trying to hold off, but I know that my girls at least would love snails on their mittens :)
