lonely mitten

Here is the first mitten I have ever knit.

The yarn is a wool/acrylic blend, and it is washable! Perfect for the tiny tots! Here is the pattern I used, it is very basic, and I didn't include the stripe because my yarn did the stripe on it's own. I extended the ribbed band at the wrist so they will stay tucked inside baby's coat a little better. If you have never knit on double-pointed needles, here is a video you should watch, it's really much easier than it looks. I should also mention that every time I hit some abbreviation that I had no clue what it meant, I searched it on You Tube (ex: SSK... I just typed it in and got knitting tutorial videos on how to slip, slip, knit...boom!). Also, if you want a bigger mitten, you can just use bigger needles and yarn.

I absolutely love this little mitten. That tiny thumb is about the cutest thing ever! Keep up the good work, and we'll hope to see a full set soon!
