Two Needle Mittens




These were fun and fast to knit! They were knit out of Paton's Classic Wool that was dyed with Kool Aid in the microwave. Straight needles (or a circular needle used to knit back and forth not joining your work) were used to knit a one piece mitten that had you knit the thumb as you got to it and then continued on with the rest of the mitt. At the end the mitten was sewn together. This was a definite plus for anyone who doesn't like going back to finish knitting the thumbs!

I am close to finishing a top down hat and have new yarn ready to start one of the teddy bears. More details soon. Happy Christmas knitting everyone!
