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.
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!
