When I saw the Incognito pattern on Knitty shortly before the holidays, I knew that Sweetie and his friends had to have some. In fact, I hoped that by making mustache gators that I might stop them from coming home with mustaches sharpied on the sides of their fingers.
So far, these have been a huge hit with Sweetie and his friends! He gave most of them away when we were out with them last night, and they had a ton of fun. They did, however, get some odd looks from people they passed on the streets!
