It’s all about mittens and mitts here at Carole Knits – just like it is over at Martha’s place.
There are Bella’s Mittens. These are for a certain Twilight fan who is quite near and dear to my heart. She loves pink, too. The yarn is Malabrigo Chunky and it’s not easy to knit that on size 8 needles, let me tell you. I have to practically stand on my head to manipulate the cables! But they will be warm and that’s the key because my girl’s hands are always cold.
There are also Merletto Mitts. These are for a dear friend who isn’t expecting a thing. I’m using some ShibuiKnits that you may recognize because once upon a time it was a toe up sock. Yeah, I frogged that toe up sock. The toe up part was just fine but the pattern itself was too big and I let it go. This is a much better use for the yarn anyway.
Once the Bella’s Mittens and Merletto Mitts are done I plan to cast on a pair of Susie’s Reading Mitts for another dear friend. This one is expecting something, though, so I need to get crackin.
I feel it prudent to now remind everyone that I don’t knit for Christmas. Really, I never do. So what the hell has gotten into me?
