My first time!!!!!! WoooHooo
This is my VERY first knitted item that does NOT use a pattern. I had made OODLES of fingerless mitts for people for Christmas this year and have ALWAYS used a pattern....anyways, out of ALL those mitts, I never made any for myself, well not anymore!! I grabbed some of the handspun that I did and and started a 2x2 ribbing....then it just went from there. I got up to the thumb and I THOUGHT about just doing a bind off and then said, nope, I don't like that....I want a THUMB so I gave it one!!!! I am so happy and excited it is ridiculous LOL!!
Now some of you may read this and think "so, it's just a plain mitt with nothing special" BUT I not only spun the yarn myself, I have NEVER knit ANYTHING unless I had a pattern. I have no desire to design my own patterns and I am perfectly content to use others, I like to do that as a matter of fact.....I even have my own personal favorites...such as www.knitspot.com I'm tellin' ya, if you want some gorgeous patterns and WELL WRITTEN ones, ya just gotta go get Anne's, nothing but the best I tell ya! Ok, back to these mitts....I am just so excited that I made THIS, something so completely mediocre but all mine!! These will forever be my favorites!! Kimmy, whaddya think? Now you won't know WHAT I'm gonna knit you LOL......scarry huh!! Kimmy is one of the people I ADORE knitting for.....I could knit her some toilet paper and she would think it was the best toilet paper around...LOL bad analogy I know but effective none the less!!
Ok, now I am back to my socks and handspun shrug!! That's what happens when I'm left to fend on my own, I tend to get side-tracked LOL....hey, I was cold dang-it!!
Knit on my friends...knit on!!!!
