Camp/Tap/Climb Out Mitts
I discovered the pattern for these cute mitts several months ago, but I didn’t put it in my ravelry queue for fear that Katie would see them and cast on for them herself. They’re just so completely “her” that I knew she had to have them. When we decided to do a little tap dancing this afternoon, I pushed them up in my mental queue. Once I cast on, it only took a few TV episodes to finish them off.
I like how they turned out, and it’s always nice to have a quick gift knit in mind, but if I were to make them again I would probably change something about the thumb, as it looks unfinished to me. Of course, that’s hard to see in the photos I’ve got because we had a hard enough time fighting with the lighting and the point-and-shoot camera.
Katie loved them and wore them all the way through our tap session, which included a very fast version of the Shim Sham Shimmy. I sat that one out.
