Knit What I Want

Look at this cute little teeny tiny mitten I made. If I make them all this size, I’m gonna need more mittens! Or I could hold the yarn double and make bigger mittens.

I didn’t hate knitting this mitten, but I didn’t love it, either. You know what that means. I’m not going to knit my mitten garland. Which is fine.

I’ve decided to focus on my Ranunculus, which I’m really enjoying. I also have a couple of hats to make. All my tonal yarn is in, so I can cast on Christmas Pudding Socks if I’m feeling super motivated.

See, that wasn’t so hard.

  1. I agree with everyone, that little mitten is so very very cute! Even just a few for ornaments on the tree or a wreath might be worth the time knitting. Also wanted to thank you for the ‘crochet tubular cast on’ reference! I found a Very Pink video with good instructions for 1×1 and 2×2 rib cast ons. I do like this type of finish, especially for a neckline – like on your Ranunculus sweater. . I have been repairing similar finishes on machine made knits for years and often wondered how they were created!?!? lol Many thank yous!

  2. I have a set of Advent mittens on my list to make for Girl #1, but not until next year or the year after! I made mine a couple of years ago, and I love them, but got really tired of it at the end. That’s the ma8n reason I have tried to vary the studio ornaments…60 every year would take the joy out it right quick!

      1. They might be kind of nice as an “in between” projects sort of knit. Before you know it, you have a pile. That’s how I’m trying to do the kids ornaments, a few now and then all year long. It’s starting to work, now that I have the supplies and patterns in a box ready to grab when I want a quick project to do.
