The idea was for some plain mittens with some pink spots. After a couple of hours on ravelry I had two patterns which I would adapt as I went along. (Bad idea for a novice knitter)
The second cuff went well until I realise I was on the bigger needles (required for the main body of the mitten) so I had to pull that back. I really hate knitting two because they have to be the same!!
I won't show you the other side, but with all the loopy wool I thought I better have a lining. I would have used some fleece but I don't have grey, so I knit a liner. (you can just see it under the mitten)
So over to my glamorous assistant (and a gloomy kitchen, well it was late when I finished!!)
So today I will try out my new mittens on the school run. If I'm feeling fun I will have the patterned side showing or if I feel the Monday blues I will have the plain side showing.
I better go (no point going on the school run if the children are still in bed!!)
