While it is true that I currently have 3 knitting projects in the works, it is also true that there is always room/time/desire to start something else. Which I did. This week. Because I saw this pattern for an advent calendar garland made of teeny tiny knitted mittens. Teeny tiny knitted mittens are extremely cute.
I also happen to have this bowl of Julia Yarn sitting around waiting for me to do little projects with. I am not intending to make an advent calendar. I am however planning to make a garland of mittens to hang on the mantel. This yarn is a dream to work with and you know when it's by Kristin Nicholas the colors are to die for.
I was going to make all solid colors but then had to go and mix things up a bit. It's fun to see how they come out. Each mitten takes a little over an hour to do.
I am going to stop when I have the right amount of mittens for my mantle. Or I get tired of making teeny tiny mittens. Whichever comes first.
I might have to mix in a few mitten ornaments I bought at Bizarre Bazaar. Or not. There could be a few buttons attached as well. Maybe.
This is what that Halloween Banner has led to. I knew no good would come of it.
