I Knitted Those Mittens (And Finished That Blanket!)


They are the heart mittens – the pattern is available for free.

They knitted up quickly using worsted weight yarn and size 3 mm needles. I used an acrylic/tencel blend (black) and Bernat ‘glow in the dark’ in a baby blue (looks white). I think the glow in the dark is a neat idea 🙂 They will be for one of my girls for Christmas.

I got the neatest pattern book today – I’m a magazine junkie, lol – for a knitted ‘advent tree’ and 24 tiny knitted ornaments. The tree is so-so but the ornaments are definitely calling me! I’m wondering if they wouldn’t be sweet to use up bits of sock yarn left over from other projects. I KNEW I was keeping that for a GOOD reason 😉

I really need to finish up my sweater – and show it. I’m not even sick of knitting it, just terribly side tracked with my Christmas list…
