mitten emergency


All knitting on my WIP's came to a screeching halt due to having a sudden mitten emergency on my hands. (oops *sorry* couldn't resist!) As is often the case with things that come in pairs, Thing One became separated from Thing Two on several occasions. Which translated into mitten language meant that the little guy had 3 lefties but no righties to be found. Personally, I blame this sad state of affairs on mischievous household sprites ;) Luckily for the little guy, my knitting skills are better than my organizational ones.


I am calling these his Arctic Blast mittens because they are super toasty warm. Love the waffle stitch and the unexpected pop of red. I modified this pattern to fit his hands with a little room to grow into. Hopefully, those darn sprites will resist stealing these for a few years yet. We had chilly cold temps in the single digits here and no power for several hours yesterday, so it was a great day to hide out in bed and knit mittens!



p.s. Mittens are very hard to photograph. I almost caused myself an injury while taking the picture for my new header :)

  5. love the new header....and the new mitts....and the fact that you were able to rise to the knitting emergency so effortlessly! you know those missing mitts are with the missing socks, don't you? (PapaGeek has had one stray sock screaming for its mate on his dresser for about a month now. Please send it home if you find it.)
