2009 - Fo No. 33
A little pair of mittens for a 1 year old's xmas pressie.
Pattern: Wee Mittens from Vintage for Modern Babies
Size: 1-3 years
Yarn: Whisper by Heirloom (acrylic but very soft)
Made on the 9th of November, only an hour or two of knitting and seaming.
The only problem I had with the pattern was for the top decreasing which was from 23 stitches down to 16 stitches. I kept ending up with an extra 2 stitches at the end so just did a k3tog at the end. It turned out just nicely so I did the same on the other mitten.
I am now halfway through knitting the Vintage Pixie Cap to go with the mittens so hopefully Miss Enja can wear them next winter since she is a petite little girl! I am sure her mum will love the fact she doesnt need to handwash them either. Okay off to do some work in the garden before it gets too hot (again). I really dislike this week of weather where we have been in the high 30's all week. Isabelle has her swimming lesson tonight so I asked Lachie to join us and they can both have a swim before and afterwards to cool off a bit. Should be fun for them.
