More mittens!




I've been slogging away at the Mitten Project, trying to get a few more pairs done. Toss in the Holiday knitting and it's mittens-a-popping around here
here are some for my neighbourhood kids

and some for me and mine

My thumbs look short on the green, cabled cuff ones but they actually fit quite well. I've named them "Kermit" and I've even made up a hat to match!

The stripey one look short (and they are, on my hands - but I have abnormal, monkey hands... on a normal, human hand I'm sure that they look great!)

The patterns are ones that I've made up after knittng hundreds (ok, tens) of pairs over the years... simple is always best.

Aren't mittens the best!?!

Quickie


Just a quick post. This is work in progress for a friend of a friend. I haven't even wowen in ends yet, but they should be completely finished tomorrow (if I find pink yarn somewhere. I had tons of pink yarn, I'm sure). After that, I have 5 more pairs of these to knit. And embelish. Oh. I can do that, they are such a quick knit:) If only I didn't drop pasta machine on my hand yesterday.

And you girls, how are you doing? Post the progress photos and links to your favorite patterns:)
