A Week of Mitts

I do this to myself practically every year.  I ask my dad what he wants for Krampus, he responds with “something knitted,” and I put it off until the week before its due.  I guess I just enjoy the stress of  timed knitting.  Or maybe I just like the excuse to not go outside during this time of the year.

Either way, just like previous years, I’ve completed my dad’s gift just in time.  I love these mitts.  I loved almost every second of these beauties.  I’m kinda sad to see them go, but I know they are going to a loving home where they will be appreciated and worn often.

I made the pattern up on the fly.  Mostly due to the fact that I started them while sitting in line for the Hobbit and I had no internet available to me.  I used Alex as a size reference.  Twisted 2X2 rib for the cuff.  4 stitch pattern repeat.  Changed up the pattern on the thumb gusset to keep it interesting.  Also the yarn was the left overs from his hat I knitted him last Krampus.  (Yarn is Knit Picks comfy worsted.)

I’m creating a list for my crafting goals for 2015, so look forward to that one.  I do know one thing that will be on there:  “Start dad’s gift before December.”
