After my success in knitting full-sized mittens, I wanted to try making a mitten ornament. I found a free pattern, dug through my bin of leftover yarn, and in less than an hour, I had this:
So tiny! So cute!!!
For scale, here's a full-size mitten next to the tiny one:
It's almost TOO cute!
Then, I made another:
And then, I got curious...
Yep. Perfect size for Kip. By they way, have you ever felt a cat's paw turn to Jello? I did, when I tried to put the mitten on him!
I also made a different pair of mittens - no fingers! I call these my "Recycled Mitts" because I made them with yarn from a cowl that I unraveled...I loved the yarn, but as it turns out, I wear only wore the cowl a couple of times, so I figured I'd rather see the yarn on something that I'd use more often, rather than hiding in my closet.
This pattern is 75 Yard Malabrigo Fingerless Mitts, if you're interested in making a pair. Very easy to knit!
This picture is even posted on a Portuguese knitting blog - the owner asked for my permission to post the picture, and of course I said yes. I've linked it here, hopefully with the English translation.
Mittens - for kittens, for ornaments, for actual hands...another fun project that keeps me entertained!
