So I've Been Knitting the Cutest Mitts Ever - Pattern by TinyOwlsMagicAttic on ETSY

If you love to knit, adore cute kittens, & want to keep your hands toasty, you'll have a hard time resisting the cuteness that is this adorable knit 'meow mitts' pattern by Stephanie at TinyOwlsMagicAttic's on ETSY!

The dictionary should be rewritten so that under the definition of the word 'cute' you come across this pattern as an example!
I think that the difficulty rating that Stephanie gave her pattern is spot on, as I'm not an expert knitter, but the pattern along with the video she provided was actually easy enough to decipher. Stephanie also offers 'knitting support' if you have any questions as you go along. Isn't handmade grand?
I love that personal touch!

She promptly sent the pattern via a pdf email file & I was able to shop for my yarn right away. The only notions needed were the needles, a darning/yarn needle, a couple stitch markers, scissors & a few balls of yarn.

It only took a long afternoon & one evening to knit these up...which is pretty good considering the 4 year old helped me by un-doing many rows & taking the whole thing off my needle at one point. She tells me she's going to knit when she grows up! I bet she will!
I'm also knitting up a pair of these for myself... as I have perpetually cold hands even in Summer. The mitts are perfect because they offer that extra toasty warmth, yet the fingers are free so I'll still have the full use of them.

After that, my next-next project may be the 'sweet robin wristees' or the 'baby lamb cuffs' ...decisions ...decisions! How can you pick when it's all so charmingly cute?

As you can see, my 4 year old is thrilled with her new accessories! She even posed pretty so I could take photos rather than running from the room & hollering 'no pictures Mama!' like she usually does, LOL!

Please check out Stephanie's shop & her other darling patterns that she's offering. I highly recommend her patterns & her customer service is fantastic as well.

Stay crafty & knit on!
