Knitted my first pair of mittens and it was awesome! 

Many dedicated knitters love to have socks on the needles as a relaxing tv watching project. In this post, I mentioned the pros and cons of my first sock knitting experience and I suspected mittens would be a better choice for me. Sure enough, knittn' mittens is awesome!

Just yesterday, I posted about the yarn I recycled and had planned to turn into mittens from a vintage pattern. Because of the election my boys had the day off school. Between watching over them at different activities and the intensity of watching the election results I finished my mittens in one day. These things flew off my needles without any effort. The only kink I bumped into is that they are a bit too small for me. However, they are perfect for my youngest son Spencer. I'm going to cast-on another pair today a bit bigger for myself.
