After years of wanting to knit an Advent calendar of little mittens or socks, but always resorting instead to paper crafts, I finally managed to pull it off! And I even got it done and up in time for Advent (well, sort of. I finished the last mitten on Saturday afternoon, crocheted the garland on Saturday night, and got the whole thing hung on Sunday afternoon).
I had originally envisioned doing the whole thing in handspun, but I’m so glad I went with these basic colors in Patons Classic – I love the simplicity of it.
I’ve hung it in front of our bay window but couldn’t get a good picture of the whole thing yet due to lighting issues. I’ll try again today.
I would love to make a few more for our Christmas tree, but I’m pretty tired of knitting these. They are fun, quick, and easy (otherwise I don’t think would’ve banged out 24 of them in 18 days), but I’m ready to move on to other projects now.
