Last Minute Gift

Now here is some real last minute gift knitting. These mittens took just one day to knit and I really like them. I actually jotted down what I did as I went along, because I knew I was liking them and thought I might make them again for Dulaan. At 3 stitches/inch and only 26 stitches around they sure went FAST! They are soft, warm, thick and pretty too. This is what they looked like an hour or two before.

Big Red Mittens

Pattern: My own (made up as I knit them using a combo of several mitten patterns)
Yarn: Morehouse Merino Bulky - Indian Summer Colorway
Needles: 2 mitts on 2 circular US 10 1/2 (6.5 mm) Mom gave me an extra set of Denise needles which sure come in handy at times like this - THANKS, MOM!
