Baby, it's getting cold outside!
And so commences the knitting of many mittens and gloves ...
Right now I am loving the mittens that I've been knitting for little ones with the i-cord attaching them together. This enables the mittens to be threaded through their coat and they won't lose them!
It also helps with time as I know how long it takes to hunt for gloves
when you realise the weather is getting chilly!
This was the start of the pink girly ones I am currently making.
As you can see by the first photo I have one mitten finished and am on the i-cord.
The second hand will be finished tonight.
I do find myself going for the blues and greens a lot of the time!
They are my favourite colours so I guess it makes sense to knit in them!
However I know it also makes sense to knit in other colours to appeal to a wider audience
.... hence the pink ones!
Although on the topic of my favourite colours - I have knitted myself a pair of fingerless gloves.
In my favourite shades! This yarn was in the Autumn box from Devon Sun Yarns.
There was a choice of colours - Autumnal etc, but I decided to go for MY shades
and then would be more likely to make myself something!
And so I have!
This pattern is from Tin Can Knits https://www.facebook.com/TinCanKnits/?fref=ts
And is a FREE pattern! Find it on www.ravely.com here ....
Isn't the yarn to die for?!
It really is a gorgeous yarn to knit with!
And ... I had enough left to make the child's mitten version of the same pattern!
Here's my little Ninja modelling them for me!
I added an i-cord to these mittens so that they wouldn't get lost either!
I'm actually thinking it may be worth putting i-cords on the adult ones too
- I know I hate losing gloves - and just think how handy (ha ha!)
they would be if they stayed with your coat all the time!
What do you think? Would that be a good idea?!
Now back to more creative adventures ....
