Mini Mittens

Several months ago I made a mini sweater. Now that sweater is on our Christmas tree and I really like it there. I decided to look for some other miniature knitted things to put on the tree as well. My search led me to these Mini Mittens.

Mini and Mini-er Mittens

The grey pair were the first ones I made. I like how they turned out, but grey isn't a great color for a Christmas ornament - not very festive and hard to see on the tree. I also wanted them to be even smaller, so I made another pair from multi-colored sock yarn on size 1 needles. These were just what I was hoping for (they're about an inch long).

But, they aren't on our tree because I tied them to a Christmas card envelope and gave them away. Now I have to make another set. But, this is fun, fast knitting. I might make a couple more sets.

  1. Hey, hope you're enjoying your Christmas season & not too overwhelmed with things to do! I was wondering (& feel free to say no) if I could get a pair of your mini mittens with a similar yarn to the 1" pair? Don't feel rushed, as I wouldn't use them this year anyway, but I thought it might be nice to have a little something from a fellow pastor's wife on my tree! :)
