I've been knitting on and off for about five years now and I've got a rather large collection of little bits of yarn that are just kind of hanging around.
So I decided to adjust my favorite mitten pattern to add a little holiday flair.Two hockey games and one episode of the Outer Limits later I ended up with these mittens to add to my collection.
I'm rather proud of them as this is the first time I've added a color pattern beyond basic stripes by creating my own pattern to follow.
It also used up a little bit of that extra cream colored yarn that I had originally bought to make a sweater that I never finished. Now I'm going to have to find something else to work on.
