I began making myself a pair of mittens...I loved the pattern that I found (HERE) and wanted to give it a try. The circular needles I have were a smidge smaller than the ones it called for, but I tried it anyway. This was the first time I have done the magic loop method. It was hard for me to completely catch onto at first...but once I did, I found it to be a great way to knit mittens! I finished the left mitten...which I just love...but unfortunately for me, they are too small for me. They fit my Madelyn perfectly though (lucky her!)...so they will go to her. Once I am able to buy the larger circular needles and yarn that I want...I will make myself a pair too! :)
So, right now, I am just working on knitting the right mitten to go with the first one. Also in my spare time, I am doing some reading. While at a Harvest Dinner at my mom's church this past Sunday, I happened to see a book on a shelf that caught my eye. It's called Free to Stay at Home by Marilee Horton. I'm not super-far into it but so far, I think it is great! As a Christian, even though she loved her job, Marilee felt that the proper place was for her to be at home, citing Titus 2 as her biblical reason. I look forward to continue reading it!
Thank you for coming by! I would love to hear about any projects you may be working on....or books you are reading! :) Have a great Thursday!
