Acorn Mittens

What is that you are asking yourself, I know that you are. Well I will tell you what it is SUPPOSED to be. It is supposed to become a mitten. But Deb (you say) you have never knit a mitten before. Yes, that is correct but there is a first time for everything. I didn't know how to have children the first time either and I still attempted that. Look how well they turned out!

I saw the mittens, already knit up in my LYS and I knew I had to try. It would be easier, I think, if the directions were written out a tad bit better but the Acorn Mitten and I are struggling along together. They are being knit with a Andes 100% wool yarn, Color #12. There is snow on the ground right now so the thought of toasty warm mittens is nice. These things may not get done until Spring but I can then just anticipate using them come fall. Lovely.

  1. Deb: I am so seriously impressed! What an earth mother you are. Next you'll be making organic wine in your cellar and growing coffee beans in your garden!!
