When pulling some antique fabrics out of a box for Christmas decorating, I came across this tiny pair of baby mittens. Knit by my husband's great-grandmother for her baby daughter (his grandmother), they were lovingly preserved in a trunk of things from the early 1900's.
Connected with a scrap of silk ribbon and knit in natural wool, the mittens are constructed without thumbs - for warmth and for less fiddling around with stubby baby hands I would guess. I thought they were so sweet I wanted to share them here (they are currently hanging on my Christmas tree!).
Since publishing the Ascend Cowl, I've been busy knitting mittens and fingerless gloves by the dozens. I hope you are enjoying the season, knitting or crocheting something warm, woolly and relaxing. With Hanukkah underway and Christmas fast approaching, it's easy to get caught up in a holiday frenzy.
I wish you a week of peace, joy and happy knitting!
