If you're not knitting, the terrorists win

(My mostly on-topic ramblings about knitting. And life in general. My life in specific.)

I'm a middle aged mother of 2 grown children and wife to a man who doesn't seem to mind my almost heroin-like yarn addiction. I spend my time writing, knitting, and generally stressing out.

Tiny Mitten

First blood on the Advent Calendar ornaments!

I finished knitting the Advent Garland yesterday and bought some nice little red buttons for it today. However, when I got home, I realized I need to buy another needle to sew the buttons on the garland, since they eyes on all the ones I have are either too small to thread the yarn through or too large to go through the button holes.

Le sigh.

So I decided to knit the first ornament for the Advent Garland. This is the Mitten. I used some red yarn leftover from another project and a tiny bit of white for embroidery.

It's a really quick knit. But then, it's only a couple of inches tall, right? Still, it's super cute. I'm looking forward to having it as part of our Christmas decor this year.
