Camp Out Fingerless Mitts & Cookies

Posted on

There are 9 days until Christmas! I have 2 (maybe 3) more hats and 1 pair of mitts left to knit before I am going to consider my Christmas knitting complete. This weekend we had a snowstorm so it was a great weekend to craft & cook. I was able to knit 2 children's hats and finish a pair of Camp Out Fingerless Mitts. I really love this mitt pattern because it's so so simple, it's free, the mitts are really functional, they look cool, and it's a very quick knit! Does it get any better than that? 192A0604 192A0595 I used Plymouth Yarns Gina, which is a worsted weight, colorful yarn, and it's only $6.99 a skein for over 200 yards.  I purchased 2 skeins so that I could get the mitts to "match" in color. I think I can squeak out one - maybe two - more pairs of mitts out of the two skeins. So for about $14 I can make 3 pairs of mitts, not bad! Each mitt takes me about 2-3 hrs to complete so I will definitely make them again. 192A0591  192A0598 Although I completed quite a few projects I don't feel like I had a ton of knitting time, instead I spent time making Christmas cookies, candy, and some soup during the storm. Then I started eating cookies, and eating cookies and eating some more cookies, ugh. I am filled with regret. But, they taste so good and are a favorite of mine. I have a lot of favorites. I told my husband yesterday that I have something wrong with me -- it's called "cookie monster-ism" I just can't help it. photo After posting a picture on instagram of these Molasses Crinkles I had a request to share the recipe.  The recipe I used was from Fearless Homemaker. http://www.fearlesshomemaker.com/2012/12/molasses-crinkle-cookies/ The only adjustment I made was not to add the cardamom. More snow headed our way tomorrow!

    Those mitts are beautiful, both because of the slow gradation in the yarn colour, and because of the change in stitch around the hands. Love them!
