Moving Right Along

Yes I am moving right along on the Mittenz.
I've used my Sideways Mitten pattern to come up with these easy Wristerz.

I decided to knit a rectangle And thanks Lizzie, for encouraging me to do that.

I then added on the thumb part at the end instead of in the middle - seemed easier that way.

You can lengthen by adding more stitches and widen by knitting more rows.

I'll be posting the pattern to my pattern page in a few days but for now here is what I did.

I like 'em!!! Great job. I'll have to try your pattern once I finish up my obsession with these socks and the mates to my other two sideways muffatees!

Aren't we creative?
