Finally a Real Knitting Project

Mitten 1

So after months and months of practicing knitting squares, trying to learn stitches and get some tension control, I am finally starting a real project.

Our knit and crochet for charity group is making mittens for underprivileged children at two elementary schools.  I am making mittens with a matching scarf.

I am also learning how to knit in the round, yay – no seam to sew!

Can’t tell how my tension is because I have only done a few rows:)

I’ll let you know if I can figure out the pattern when I get to the thumb, sigh.

Anyway, wish me luck……
