The beta mittens
When my friend H said that her little girl, S, could use mittens I decided I wanted to make them. I mean I knit and people knit mittens all the time right? But I couldn't find any patterns with thumbs for a 1 year old, and most like a 1 year old doesn't need the thumb but… So I decided to make up a pattern. It isn't to the stage where I can say I am designing patterns but eventually I probably will. I like figuring out how to put things together and designing patterns seems like a way to figure out how to put something together and make it exactly the way you want.
So here is a picture of the beta mittens (sadly they didn't get mailed today because the post office decided to close at 4:54 instead of 5:00).
