Mittens for Amelia!

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!

Mittens for Amelia


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:
