Knitting Mitties

May 22, 2010

Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

What a beautiful Saturday morning it is. I have spent much of the morning knitting away. It’s been so peaceful even with a house full of kids and visiting cousins under our roof. This is the view from my chair today. I love how my daughter leaves her baby doll in my studio to keep me company. Strangely enough the doll does keep me company because she makes me think of my daughter while she is at school. It’s kind of funny.

I am having so much fun making these little mix and match baby mitts out of Spud & Chloë Sweater. You recognize those colors, right? Those are still the leftovers from the Dream Catcher Baby Blanket. Originally I thought about making some booties out of the leftovers but then I remembered the Jelly Bean Baby Socks. Those tiny socks are perfect for using up odds and ends of Sweater. Instead I thought I would add some sweet and simple baby mitties, the kind without thumbs. My babies wore these kind of mitts all of the time. You could easily knit the blanket, the hat, the mitts (coming soon) and the baby socks using up the leftovers from the blanket Sweater yarn. That would add up to make one incredible baby gift.

I’ll be back soon with the pattern for you. Have a good weekend everyone!
