Mini Mittens


I totally stole this idea from my friend Janelle. I had some leftover sock yarn from the first Baltic Sea Sock, and just started noodling around with it.

Otherwise, I haven't done much knitting this week. The chorus we sing in has a big concert this weekend, so most of our evenings have been taken up with extra rehearsals.

I found the pattern online here . Instead of size 4 DPNs, I used size 1 circulars, since they were available -- and I wanted these to be tiny.

I finished this pair on Tuesday, but haven't been home during daylight hours in order to take a non-flash picture until today. For scale, one of these just fits over my index finger. Just think of the number of mini mittens I could have for the tree next year if I just made a pair of these after every pair of socks I knit...

  2. Oh, yours are much more wee than mine was! Mine held a gift card with only a little stretch in the cuff. But then, it wasn't made of sock yarn...

    What a great goal, to make a tiny mitten (or sock) from the last bit of yarn from every pair of socks knit. I may just have to try that.

    I wonder if one could do that while, say, driving to Texas?
