Merry Christmas Mini Mittens

It’s Christmas Eve and after a lazy morning lounging in bed, drinking cocoa while the cat kept my feet warm and watching old movies from the 30’s and 40’s I finally roused to putter about the Roost.

Tonight I’m going over to a friend’s house for a Christmas Eve fondue dinner and I’m bringing slow roasted pork belly and a few treats for my hosts. (Please check “Heather in SF” later this week to see the porkaliciousness)

I started thinking of my friend’s little girl K and what I remembered and loved about Christmas when I was her age. I loved my dolls and my Grandma B used to sew and crochet outfits for my dolls, and my Granny L used to knit us the most wonderful slippers and little pillows for our bedrooms. How I miss them this time of year.

I was organizing my knitting baskets and found a pattern I had printed last year for mini mittens and found some pretty sock yarn leftovers and within an hour or two completed these little darlings for Miss K.20111224-150646.jpg20111224-151101.jpg

Aren’t they just adorable? They’re knit on size 1 needles and are about 1 1/2 inches long. (Updated: I found the pattern!) Here is the pattern for these mini mittens in case you want to try them!

I posed the mini mittens on my mini Christmas tree.

Then I spotted the dish of little foil Teddy bears and Santa chocolates and stuffed one in each mitten.

I hope she loves them as much as I enjoyed making them. Merry Christmas to all!
