I Did It !!

I did do it!!I finished a project that I am really proud of these mitts!! which are really " Those Mitts"I had started these a couple of times and got stuck so the other day I decided to go to the Internet for help and found Great help on UTube, and was able to get these little guys done. I found the FREE pattern here and will be making many more for Christmas as they knit up pretty quickly!
First pair will be for my son who has already stretched out this pair from wearing them ( why didn't I make them in Pink!!) he calls them " Texting gloves." I have been busy knitting and will be sharing some other projects when I get my camera out again, lots of fun. oh yeah and I finally got a chance to go to my LYS which is an hour away so not so local but its probably a good thing. Anyhow after an hour and a half of wandering the shop, looking at all the great yarn, Talking with the gal at the shop and learning lots and 70.00 spent on yarn for gifts. I was walking out the door a Happy knitter!!!

so.... right home, quick get something to eat and dive into that bag of yarn!!!

Too fun! I LOVE Gruber's yarn selection! So easy to spend a paycheck there too if ya catch my drift! Can't wait to see more of your projects.

I love the "text gloves"! What a cute name for them, and you did a great job! Doesn't it feel exciting to go buy yarn when you have the confidence of a finished project!?! I hope you get to have some juicy phone conversations with your sisters this holiday!
