I finished a pair of mittens for Amelia yesterday! I know it's still summer, but I wanted to start now because with my track record for knitting lately - I didn't know if I'd finish them before snow set it! It only took me about a month though I'm happy to say.
Even though it took me a month, I think I only got to knit on them about 4 days total. Life with a toddler isn't very knit friendly so they mostly sat and waited for me to have an evening off!
Pattern: Mittens for a 1 year old by by Kerry Higgins Wendt
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino
Needles: Size 5
Mods: I didn't use smaller needles for the cuff and knit the whole thing on 5s. I made the cuff a bit longer too and they came out to be about 3 inches total.
I was a bit worried about them fitting over her hands because the cuff came out a bit tight. If I make them again - I think I'll add a few more stitches. But overall - I'm pleased with how they turned out!
I think Amelia likes them too:
