Mitts and Bitts


I designed these mitts-they fit wonderfully!  It is from the Targhee I spun a little while ago .  I had planned to make the Vino mitts from Knitty.com but after several attempts I gave up and happily knit these!  I have enough yarn to make another pair which I will do but I will tweak the point up the back of the hand to make it more prominent.  This designing kick is so much fun-I will share the pattern for these with you in a

 The second skein of Granny Apple Tree yarn is finished!  I want to cast on for a pair of mitts but will probably tackle a pair of socks first.  The socks will be an 'under the radar' project!
