Hope and kindness and faith are always to be remembered! :)

This is a little free pattern from me to you. Maybe you want to make them as a gift… or maybe you want to keep them and do something kind for others.
I wish these easy lacy mittens will make you and others happy today. If we start a little circle of generosity and kindness, our spark can make us all better people. You can join the movement on Instagram by using the hashtag #payitforwardmittens and #knitterspayitforward.
