My 10-year old nephew would not give me any rest this Christmas until I made him some fingerless mitts-especially since I knit things for several other family members this year. He watched me making the mitts, commenting on my speed and progress and allowing me only short breaks until I finished. He hasn't taken them off except to sleep! He chose the color scheme and will probably wear them to soccer games-the yarn is washable but i don't think they will stay white for long.
It's cool to have a 10-year old boy demand that you knit him something!
