Work-in-Progress Wednesday


As promised I'm working on Smitten - A Holiday Garland. Mittens 1 to 16 are done. Mittens 17, 18 and 19 are knit but the finishing is still to be done. Mitten 20 is on the needles in Briggs and Little Anniversary Twist.

Over the last several weeks I've mused about how to number these mittens. Up until a couple of days ago I was resigned to duplicate stitching the numbers in a contrasting colour ... but then I found this. Cream coloured numbers have been ordered and are expected any day!

Just four more mitts to go and I'm determined to finish this week. I'm so looking forward to the part where I can just think about all the fun little things to put in them :)

It's work-in-progress Wednesday; be sure to check the links at Tami's Amis for all the updates!

Wow! You are early. I remember that I finished H. little advent sacks on the 29th of November last year ...
But, oh, how I would have loved a calendar made of self knitted gloves!

Your garland is going to be soooooo adorable. The colors you've chosen make it bright and very cheery.

That garland is just too cute! I personally have yet to ever finish a pair of mittens myself (some weird mental block) so it's extra impressive.
