Yesss! Mittens! And just in time for fall and winter. I can hardly believe it!!! How did I plan this so well you say? Well, I didn’t. I actually started these mittens back in February. So there you have it.
I made these for my daughter Natalie after I realized that the blue is just the most beautiful with her eyes. I was gifted the yarn by my friend Amanda and I’m so glad to have a finished project! Natalie is super excited to have her mittens finally.
I didn’t spend any time on them over the summer, except for one weekend, but it was nice to know that the project was there are ready for when I was. This fall and winter I’m hoping to start a new knitting project or two and try to keep something going instead of taking a big break and forgetting things. Next up is an arm knit pillow that I bought yarn for last year and then hopefully a shawl.
I’m very thankful to be able to knit. It’s something that I never thought I could do. For me it’s a nice break from sewing and an opportunity to learn new things all the time. Well, I still do in sewing, but for knitting it feels a little different.
