So I haven’t been working on my master knitting classes. Actually, I really slowed down on the knitting in the spring and summer. Not really sure why, but am back at it full steam. I have quite a list of Christmas projects (that I’ll share another day) to get to – so I’ve got to get moving!!
The first Christmas project I picked up this year is from Knit Picks. It’s a Christmas garland called “Smitten” – 24 color mini mittens. Could be a nice advent calendar. Here is the link for this pattern:
It is just darling. I’m using deeper jewel tones for my Smitten. I’ve finished two so far. They are fairly quick to knit up. I’ve done 1 and started another in an evening. I could PROBABLY finish two if I wanted to! I’ve got a purple one on the needles now. Here is a pick of the two I’ve done. Fresh off the needles – no blocking or anything yet.
I think they’re so cute!! Actually, they could work at nice tree ornaments too. But, I do have a spot in mind for them in my front hall.
