Where can I find mittens that won't come off?

Postby Mungo » Tue Nov 08, 2011 3:51 pm

I thought I'd found the perfect thing but it's a US site, I don't think they ship to the UK http://januarybaby.com/smittens.html

Anyone know if I can get something similar over here for my 14-month-old?

I already have 'mitten clips', which stop his mittens dropping on the ground but don't stop him taking them off his hands.

Thats exactly what we need in our house as well. I thought about knitting or sewing her a pair as I can find them in the UK :sewing: :sew:

They look fab don't they? I've emailed them to ask about UK shipping.

I'm not a great knitter but it can't be that hard to make a basic pair... Might enlist my mum to help :giggle:

I think you should be able to do a long rectangle and the fold over the ends to make "pockets"

I think even I could manage that! :hohoho:

I just had a reply from the Smittens people (SUPER fast, I literally only emailed them 5 minutes ago!!) saying they'd look into postage costs to the UK and let me know later today/tomorrow, I'll keep you posted :D

I think it would be good to do a coop to save on postage, I'd love some for Callum, then I only need to find a hat, shoes and socks he can't take off. :giggle:
