Little Mittens

Okay, Audrey and others said it's not too early! Here's the first-of-the-year Christmas project I've gotten done that I can show you! I've been invited to two different ornament exchanges the last two years, and I have been on the look-out for something cute to make. Now that I am knitting, I spotted these and thought they'd be perfect. Last year, I was working like mad to finish my exchange contributions at the last minute. This year, I am trying to spread out my Christmas crafting through the whole year, so that December is actually enjoyable.

I made these little mittens from what was left from my socks. I also have some green and other various bits, so hope to have a nice little pile for ornaments before December.

I've been knitting by the pool this last week, where everyone has lessons, and I have made two new knitting friends! Funny to be making Christmas presents poolside. Here's Speed, swimming under water.

I haven't been to the pool yet this summer, but it looks wonderful! The mittens are very cute and when you hand them out this December you can think of the warm, summer days in which they were created!
