Kitten Mitten Knitten Update
I've made it to the end of my pinky finger with the blue yarn. I'm now ready to begin the decreases for the closure at the fingers. I've made the thumb opening and am knitting around and around with the green. After I finish these, I'll have another mitten of each color to make. Why did I start two different pairs at once? I had one ball of each color. I wanted to work each section at least twice in a row to learn the technique. That's just how I learn. Do it over and over again. So, I made two cuffs, then two gussets for the thumbs, and now, the two hand portions of stockinette stitch. Soon I'll decrease both and close with a kitcher's stitch. Click on the photo for the Knit Picks video tutorial that I'm following.
May God bless you as you prepare your homes, your hearts, and your gifts for Christmas.
