So. I'm doing a project this year. I am knitting a mitten a week - a pair in two weeks. I'm calling it The Mitten Project. My idea is to have year full of mittens. In the end I'm gonna give three pairs of mittens away to the readers of my blog. Until then I'm getting help choosing what mittens to do.
I've been going through how many pages of mitten patterns on Ravelry I can't remember! And I've compiled it into themes and categories. Some are obvious to have in

The set up of the project is that, beside knitting and writing about the mittens, i make notes on the pattern. Write down a bit about it, of course where you buy it, tips and notes for the project. I also write down about the entire process so you can follow how I'm managing it all and perhaps get some ideas

I haven't been sharing projects here on craftster for a while now. If not a very long while. It has been at least a year or two since I have been active Shocked oi vey time goes by fast! And I must admit I'm a bit rusty as well needy to post here. So now that I'm actually have pictures of what I've done I though I should push my self to post again. Oh the nerves! ;P

The first mitten of January was Flamingo Mittens from SpillyJane. SpillyJane makes wonderful patterns with amazing whimsical motifs. I'm a bit sad I couldn't get a hold of a fresher green without it being pastel green. So I had to 'settle' for army green. The knit was really fun a great first mitten of my year of mittens.



If you want to read more about my project and the mittens you can here.

You can also vote on what mitten I should knit in February! It's St. Valentines so hearts hearts hearts is the theme^^

I love those! I think the green is great. It's subtle and lends an elegance. Of course, the flamingos are amazing!

Thanks for the support guys^^ I hope you will follow the project Smiley

I'm really glad you like the darker green! It's growing on me. I think he and I just had a bad start as I wanted something different to begin with.

I will keep sharing no doubt about that!

Aaaand yup. SpillyJane do awesome patterns Cheesy If you knit and don't know her go check her out (you can find links to her blog and patterns on my blog if you can't find her on Ravelry yourself Smiley)

FOLLOWING! My goodness, those flamingos are tremendous! I don't knit at all so my jealously knows no bounds, lol. What a wonderful project for me to watch, and drool over Cheesy.
