Ideas for Small but Special Christmas gifts

 

Not just for Christmas, but for any occasion. Today I found this pretty pattern for mitts on garnstudio.com’s collection of Halloween items to knit. What attracted me to them is the simple yet elegant pattern, knitted in garter stitch with a pretty picot edge. The pair in the photo is made in fingering weight on size 2.5 mm/1.5 US straight needles. This is a great site with lots of helpful features. There is, for example, a conversion chart for changing between mm and inches, another for adapting the pattern for different weight yarns, and there are nine tutorials for this pattern alone. Drops Delight is the yarn used, and as the mitts require only one 50 gram skein, they can be made for less than $5.00!

I’m going to whip up several pairs to have on hand for last minute gifts. Starting tonight while watching the World Series. Go, Red Sox!
