Mittens for Kittens Progress

As you know, my three little kittens need some mittens.  I'm following the Kelley's Mitten Class at Knit Picks.  I knit my first four inch cuff today.  I made it long; so, it can fold over or tuck into coat sleeves.  I like to knit Fuzzy Feet socks section by section assembly line fashion; so, I'm going to do the same thing with these kitten mittens.  I only have one ball of each yarn; so, I'm going to go ahead and knit the cuff for the green mittens before I go on to the main body and thumbs.  That way I'll have more practice on one skill before I go onto the next skill.  I'm afraid that I'm going to be all thumbs after finish the cuffs.  ;~) 
Here's the second color of Wool-Ease.  It's a lovely green.  I cannot say which kittens will get which mittens even though they've been warned not to read my blog until after Christmas!

Well, I'm off to cast on the first mitten of the second pair.  Until next time, I'll be a knittin' kitten!

Happy at Home

  1. Hi Laura,

    It certainly is fun knitting mittens! I made mine using a super simple pattern. I knit them on straight needles and then stitched a side seam. I like the long cuff you knitted. I must keep that in mind for the next pair I knit! : )
