Autumn Mittens

So its that time of year again: time for mitten knitting for the little ones.

Exif_JPEG_PICTUREI decided to make mittens for the yarn stash challenge this month.  My mom gave me this sock yarn a few years ago. It was leftover after she knitted my son a sweater and cleverly she let me have the rest of the yarn.Exif_JPEG_PICTURE

Since then I have used bits of it, always trying to finish it up and not had success.  There really is a lot on each skein.  I still have some left so I guess I can knit some more mittens next fall.

My older son got two pairs and the younger one got one.  I improvised the pattern.  I have knitted enough of mittens through the years to kind of know how it goes.  At least these fit and will probably be used.

My older son is really happy with his finger mittens, makes him feel like a grown up.
