Pink Princess Mitts

Princess has been begging for some ever since I made mine. Of course, they had to be pink. So I decided to do these. She's sleeping in them.

She says mine are softer. I offered to make some for her in the yarn that I used for mine. She declined. Why? "Because the ones you made for me might think that I don't love them."
