For my 2 year old, it's IMPOSSIBLE to get him to wear mittens! He feels like I am binding his fingers, and will go into a screaming fit! He'll wear gloves, but they are too big! So he dislike it as his "bulgy" finger hinder his activities. Aside from infant mitts, nothing seems to fit. So what else can a knitchetholic mom do to keep his little hands warm?! Make one! :)
