And The Race Is On!

No, not the Kentucky Derby - the Mittenz 2008 Challenge!

Here is my 3rd set of 8 pairs

Plus one more not in this set makes my total 25 pairs so far.

We have a database in our group site and 15 members have posted their counts.
The total to date is 161 pairs!
Jean is in the lead! She has made 30 pairs.

Pink Thumbless Mittens

I knit up a pair of cute little pink mitts and decided to try them sideways in garter stitch.

The picture above is what I came up with. Then I thought, why not add a thumb?
The picture below shows the result.

Kidlett Mittenz

Pattern still in the testing stage, but if we like it - I'll post it soon.

Babette Blanket

I just love this blanket and finally got the yarns chosen to match my grandson's room colors.
The pattern calls for 17 colors or more - of course I have more......

The pattern first appeared in Interweave Crochet Spring 2006 and is also for sale as a PDF on the Interweave Site.
There are some beautiful Babettes on the Flickr Babette Group - go take a look.

Just when I think I'm making some headway.... I finished up three pair yesterday.

Heck, I'm gonna start crocheting them all. I can do at least 1.5 - 2 pair a day that way!!!! :)

Love your little pink mitts!

Way to go, for your mittens effort!!! So many mittens from so few people, that's something! I've looked at the Babette blankets on flickr. Boy, there are really wonderful ones! I'm sure your's will be amazing as well. I could not do this, with so many squares to sew together! :o)
