My Favorite Holiday Project
Originally uploaded by red.knitter
I’m still plugging away at the holiday knitting…unfortunately. I finished all of the time sensitive projects on time. However, there’s still plenty to do before I get back to the projects that I have around the house.
The mittens in the picture are my favorite of my holiday projects. I started working on them on Thanksgiving day and finished them shortly before leaving home for the holidays. I think that they really turned out nice, and my future mother in law loves them. She was showing them off to her neighboors shortly after opening them! The only problem with this project was that since I took so long on these mittens my gauge changed! One mitten ended up noticeably bigger than the other. I did a thorough steam blog and they ended up pretty close to the right size. I might make another pair for myself or my fiance someday, but I need a break for now!
