I'm getting close to the end of my pregnancy, and I haven't been feeling so motivated to work on my sewing projects lately. Instead I've spent a few evenings with my knitting. You already saw how I redid a little red hat, but in our winter gear was also one lonely mitten that was just the right size for Kid 2 and had a matching hat. I knit this set years ago, and sometime along the way one of the mittens went missing. I am not a very experienced knitter, but I can knit simple things, and mittens fall into this category for me. Knitting mittens for small people is a nice project because it doesn't use up a lot of yarn or time. Both are pluses for me.
This is a pattern I made up as I went along, so I am happy to share it with you. Please let me know about any problems so that I can fix them. As I said, I am not an experencienced knitter, and there is probably a better way to knit mittens, but this is what I did and they turned out rather well.
