Basic Mitten


I had a great day today. My Mom came for a visit. This was a nice surprise but it did put me behind on my knitting. This is all I have to show you of the new mitt. It is knit out of Patons Classic Wool on 2.75mm dpns and the gauge is 6.5 sts per inch. In this picture I have just finished the increasing for the thumb gusset. On the next row I will put the thumb sts on a holder, cast on one extra stitch and then it is straight knitting to the top of the mitt for a few decrease rows. Then back to pick up those thumb sts, knit the thumb, decrease a few sts and the mitt is finished! Finished pictures tomorrow.
