New Pattern: Poky Hedgehog Mittens!

I have a few patterns I'm going to be posting in the next few weeks; this is the first. They're all part of a new collection I've been working on. (While managing to keep up with schoolwork too, more or less!)

Aren't they cute? These little hedgehog mittens are knit with DK yarn at a gauge of 6 stitches and 8 rows/inch. I used Madelinetosh Tosh DK in "French Grey" and "Twig" to make them.

The pattern is $2.99 and available for download from Ravelry. It is four pages long and includes pictures and detailed instructions both for the mittens and for some of the less beginner-ish techniques involved (and I mean REALLY less beginner-ish; the only skills used besides knit and purl and knitting in the round with dpn's are m1 increases, ssk, k2tog, and picking up stitches).

Adorable! I know a few children who would love these.

I can't wait to see the whole collection. I already plan to make the mittens for my granddaughter.

My women's group asked about the "gifted knitter" from NY. I said I had not heard from you in a very long time. Hope life is good and your creative energy is the reason why you have not posted.
Looking forward to more inspiration.

Hi! I found your page through Ravelry and am love with these mittens! So cute. I want to buy the pattern, but Ravelry had this listed under infant/child. Would it be easy to modify the pattern to fit an adult-sized hands?
