Teal Blue Mitts


I finished not one pair but two pairs of mitts.  One pair is slightly longer in the hand and thumb for a known recipient's hand size.  The second pair is a 'guesstimate' size.  They will fit!

Now that I've knit this pattern three times, I'm ready to move onto something different.  For several years now I will knit the same pattern a couple of times if I like it and believe it would make a great gift.  There is something soothing about knitting a familiar pattern and getting into a zen state of mind.

What have you been working on this week?

  5. Those look lovely.... I don't knit, but can appreciate the thought of being so familiar with what one is doing, it almost "does" by itself. And the person's mind is free to gently wander. -smile-

    Me'thinks we all *ought* to do that more... In whatever way it works for us... Peacefully let our mind wander..... But just let the bothersome thoughts pass on. Move on to a maximum of nice thoughts....

  6. Those mitts will be such welcome gifts. Pretty color - blue (my fav) of course. I do knit some of the same patterns - The World's Simplest Mittens and Grammy's Favorite Hat come to mind. I have also knit quite a few Vanilla Latte Socks. The same of anything can be quite soothing.
