I don't know what it is, but lately all I want to knit are mittens. Teeny tiny mittens. I can finish one mitten in a few hours, they're a good way to use up stash yarn, and I'll give them away to charity once I'm all done!
These are made from Lorna's Laces, which is lovely, soft, and superwash - unfortunately, I can't figure out how to knit with the rainbow colorway without it looking muddy. I like mixing it with the white to break it up a bit.
These are from Lion Brand Wool... Not crazy about the colors, the yarn was a gift - someone will like them! I also figured out how to make the top of the mitten less pointy (reading the directions correctly helps!)
The pattern is from Ann Budd's Handy Book of Patterns, which is an amazing book.
