Knitted Mini Mittens and a Turban

Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and best wishes to you all for 2012! Despite not working in the run up to Christmas this time around it still seemed to whiz past really quickly. I saw loads of family, had a trip to London, did some kniting, a bit of sewing and a whole lot of wrapping.

Anyhow, I hope the season has treated you well and that you’v not gained 4lbs like I have!

When I wrote a previous post about the mittens I was knitting as Christmas gifts I realised that I never posted about the first time that I knitted the pattern – shock horror!!

I found the Pickles pattern through the ever fabulous Ravelry and decided to knit a pair for Emily back in early March when she was a couple of months old.

I also knitted for the first time an i-cord. Looks fancy and complicated, but in actual fact is so quick and easy to knit.

At the same time I knitted this little turban, which is also a Pickles pattern. When you see the picture on the pattern, there is no way that you can resist knitting one!

Emily is now 12 months and I am still squeezing her into the hat and mittens! Perhaps something belated for her 1st Birthday is in order?

btw – the cardigan Emily is wearing in the picture wasn’t knitted by me. It was knitted by my husband’s Aunt for our first daughter. Here it is getting used all over again! I believe it is a Debbie Bliss pattern
