Christmas Gifts: Christina Mitts {Yarn Along}

I cast off the My striped & slouchy hat I knit last week, but there's no photograph because I still need to block it. Note to self: MUST do that before this weekend.

I started knitting Christina mitts for a Secret Santa handmade gift exchange I'm taking part in; I always have a hard time knowing what handmade items to give someone I don't know. Overall, I'm happy with how they're turning out, but if I knit them again, I'm definitely knitting a thumb gusset. I'm using size 7 needles like the pattern calls for, except for the top ribbing where I'm using size 6 needles instead.

I haven't been doing too much reading lately due to a knitting surge because of Christmas.

What are you knitting or reading?
Join me at Ginny's Yarn Along.

  3. you can never go wrong with mitts, I think that will be a treasured gift!!

  4. Well these are pretty! I love the color you picked out, I'm sure whoever receives them will be very pleased! :)

  5. What a lovely Secret Santa gift. Those mitts are beautiful.

  6. I just began knitting and I'm making my family all hats for Christmas. Those mitts are looking awesome!

  7. I simply love the colour. It looks so warm. And I guess that would make a perfect this Christmas. Thanks anyway for sharing this one.
