Mittens and Paper cuts
This week I'm working on making dozens and dozens of tiny mittens - a mitten garland slash Advent calendar. Find the free pattern here if you want, but it's really just a basic mitten, made over and over
and over again, and it's using up all of my random scrap balls and left-over bits that I never know what
to do with. The fun part will be putting little gifts and notes inside each one... I'm looking forward to that
part. Not that I'm not enjoying knitting dozens and dozens of tiny mittens, but I am thinking ahead about
what I'll put inside them. Little notes that say - Hot Chocolate time! Let's go for a ride and look at the lights! Time to bake cookies! Let's make a paper chain today! Christmas Movies and popcorn tonight!
yep - I'm looking forward to all of that.
Not to skip ahead of Thanksgiving - which I am also very much looking forward to! But to be a knitter
Other knitting update - the handwarmers are done, and are employed at my desk in the office where they
are doing much good keeping my hands toasty and allowing me to type at the same time.
Lastly, the only thing I'm reading this week is this book I got from our library on Scherenschnitte... which I hope to tell you more about tomorrow. I've been working on some things - some papery things.
