Last week I got to spend a few beautiful days in New Hampshire, for a quick last-minute summer vacation. Lately when John and I visit his parents, we’ve been staying in Bonney’s epic yarn stash room.
Aside from this being the quietest room in the house (yarn makes great insulation, and this is rural New Hampshire, so there’s not much noise to begin with), I enjoy this room for the strange new knitting paraphernalia that I always find in it. Lately Bonney seems to be taken with creepy vintage puppet mittens!
This kit makes two “lucky puppets.” Apparently dead mice are lucky mice!
What time is it, kids? It’s time to ponder how many nightmares were generated from these kits!
More lucky puppets! I get the skunk, but no way am I buying the left one as “Wally the Whale.”
And since when do skunk and whale make a nice pair of things to wear in the winter? Apparently whoever started on this kit agreed with me halfway through.
Maybe you love puppet mittens. Maybe you can’t get enough of them. Maybe you need ten different designs!
Actually I think these are awesome and I’m hoping Bonney will make me some.

I love how the buttons have been sewn on in Xs, making them undead puppets.
What fun kits to see now. I wonder what knitting kits is being sold now that generations in the future will look back at and wonder “What were they thinking?”
Anna, you just let me know what lucky animal you want to adorn those busy hands of yours!
Thank you Bonney! I’d love a random combo, actually. Snake and flamingo, maybe? Do they come in adult size?
What a great blast from the past! I just love seeing what kinds of projects people were interested in during different periods. Thanks so much for sharing!
These are wonderful!!! I wish I had seen them first! I think the skunk is my favorite.
I think the puppet mittens will be less creepy when made up in person. They are so cute!
My sister and I were given a pair of skunk mittens over 50 years ago. We had so much fun playing with the puppets. I’d love to have the pattern.
These are awesome, though I don’t understand why a kit would not have enough yarn for two of the same mitten.
