Knitting for Good Projects

FO: Mitten Magic

I’ve been knitting mittens for the youth campaign for Afghans for Afghans as well.  They take less time than socks, and less yarn.  I used the leftovers from the sweater, plus a black skein I’d bought at the same time:

Ann Budd’s basic mitten pattern from her Handy Patterns book. The center mitten has the same spiral top, but I changed it up for the other mittens to side decreases just because. I’m like that.

And my last project for the youth campaign is finishing a pair of socks.  I was afraid they might look like a Franken-sock, but on the feet, they are comfortable and look pretty good! I’m doing them toe-up from Chrissy Gardiner’s lovely book: Toe Up! Patterns and Worksheets to Whip Your Sock Knitting Into Shape. I must say that this is a wonderful book, with many great features. Maybe I’ll do a mini-review soon.
