Wearing My Knitting

One of my goals for 2009 was to wear my knitting more often.  I mean, if I'm going to spend the money buying yarn, and spend time knitting, I should be wearing my creations, RIGHT?!?  



Not sure if this is what I had in mind.  Hehe. 



In all seriousness, aren't these little mitten ornaments ADORABLE?  I found the pattern on ravelry and am in love.  Each mitten only took about 20 minutes to knit up (in the round on double points with sock yarn scrap).  



Last year my knitting buddy Deb made me miniature socks ornaments for my tree, so when I found this pattern, I knew I had to make a set for her.  :)  Once the rest of my Christmas knitting is done, I'm making a few pair for MY tree!  (Here is how they look hanging up.) 




ps... Sorry - these aren't available for sale right now.  I'm up to my eyeballs in knitting projects that need completion before Christmas.  Thanks for understanding!

Oh my heavens! The mittens are flipping adorable! I must hunt down that pattern and definitely overcome my fear of double points! Maybe that should be a goal of mine for 2010...hmmmmm

Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring me yet again, Nona! I hope you get all your projects completed in time!
