Christmas Mittenz

I've been working on my Mittenz all day yesterday and today.
I received a request to make the pattern for larger/longer hands and I've been trying to tweek the numbers.
Of course one can always go up a needle size or two to get a larger sized mitten, but sometimes that does not always work.

So first I had to go back to square one and make a pair with the original numbers and here they are - Christmas Mittenz!

Then I tweeked and made a second pair a little larger. Uh oh... I did this late at night and I left out the stitches for the thumb to fingertip length. Still a bit short - but I did get a nice cuff length going.
Darn! I have now started a 3rd pair and I think this time I've got the numbers figured out just right.

So stay tuned for the outcome of my mad experiments!

Those other WIPs? Huh? I have other WIPs?
I'll get back to them soon enough.

And They Keep On Coming!

Three more FO's to report!


These are the hats I made from Lion Brand's Just Hats Book.

Worked the original flat as per pattern directions. On the next one I modified it to knit in the round - much easier and no seams! I also added a few more pattern rows for length.

Another Baby Sweater Experiment Done!

So after making the crocheted Brazilian Baby Sweater - info on Sept 29 post - I decided to experiment and knit a hexagon sweater.
Only to remember that there is an already existing pattern, The Pram Set, from Knitters #63.
I knit on and on and on... just adding sleeves and edgings as I knit. So no pattern for this experiment exists. It's a little narrow on the bottom as you can see, but it's kinda cute!

Made with cotton yarn from the stash.

Still working on those other wip!

Almost finished with the 2nd Baby Bog - needs buttons.
Finished a pair of crocheted slipper sox - wore them right away - need to wash them for a pic!
