Almost done with my Christmas crafting

>> Saturday, December 11, 2010

I am not a huge Christmas crafter for presents.  Once I add a deadline for a project all the fun is sucked right from it and I approach finishing it with the same dread as I approached finals deadlines in school.  This project was a bit different though. 

First it only took a couple of hours to finish a pair.  Second I knew they would get lots of use and third I quickly memorized the pattern so they were a fantastic mindless knit for watching Christmas movies over the weekend. 

Five pairs of mitts for 5 happy children, a mitt that has a little flap top to quickly cover up cold hands. 

The pattern is free and has sizing for a child size mitt, a woman size mitt, and one for men.  As far as I'm concerned everyone should have a pair and now that I know it so well....maybe everyone will :)

Amazing!! Look at all this progress. You don't need a deadline, you do perfectly well on your own!

Such a cute gift that will spread lots of joy ~ and how fun it will be for them all to have the same mittens!

These mitts with flaps are now out of circulation. Any chance of posting the pattern
