I love Robots

The mittens I made for my nephew for Christmas were too small. So it's back to the knitting, because I didn't want his whole family to have new mittens, but not him. This time round, I decided to modify Grace Schnebly's Love Bytes mittens.
I didn't want to do color work on the whole mitten, so I whipped up a generic mitten, with the robot motifs intended for the cuff, placed around the bottom of the hand. These are far more plain than the pattern intends. I will definately make a pair that follows the pattern exactly - I love the larger robot motifs too. I love how these are working out, and am quite sure this pair will fit.
