Small Things

 I absolutely adore knit Christmas ornaments, toys, and other small whimseys...but I almost never knit them because truth be told they are kind of a pain.  However, I simply could not resist KnitPick's 2015 Christmas ornament booklet, Adorn.  (I actively regret not having bought their last couple of Christmas collections while they were available.)  I had intentions of knitting more than a few of the goodies in that book, but time and some knitting fatigue were against me.  I managed four of the wee mittens before I was done.

I gifted one of the cream colored tree mittens to a good friend of mine, the rest of them I kept for myself.  My intention is to perhaps start this summer making more so that I can gift them next year.  I have some ideas for taking the basic pattern and using it as a template for personalized designs!
