A Mitten for every Pocket

I am trying to knit enough mittens so that I can stash a pair in the pocket of every winter coat.

And during or after that, knit a shawl like the one that I saw today at Stockholm Objects. (Sadly, not on the website and only one left at the store.) A square of grey wool lace, probably DK weight, edged with a hot pink, mondo-crocheted edging. Perhaps I'll base it on Priscilla Gibson-Robert's Christening Chrysalis in the Knitter's Magazine best of shawls and scarves collection.
