These mittens were fun to make! Such a fast knit as well, which is good given that I knit the pair twice...
The first mitten had a big, glaring boo boo. I twisted right when I should have twisted left...or was that left when I should have gone right? Aggh! It was also a tetch big for me, so I reduced the number of stitches by 2 and it fits much better.
Hannah was trying to explain and show me how to smile with my eyes ala Tara Banks .
(can you believe she copy righted the phrase?? Sheesh!)
I think I did ok with those smiling eyes, but then I AM Irish and you know the song....
"When Irish eye are smiling"....
It was fun to be out in the sun today. It's a good thing because it's going to be awhile before we see the sun again.
