  1. Wooww.. It seems so so beautiful.. I will knit.. Knitting is so hard for me. Because of that reason I am always making crochet. But this time.. Wow...:))

    1. Practice makes progress lovely Beck. Knitting is not so hard once you learn the basic knit and purl you just need to practice. I will look forward to seeing how you go with it. Hugs xox

  2. They look really cosy and comfortable, although I am not a knitter :) great pattern!

    1. Thanks, they really are too. Very squishy yarn and its actually up-cycled from an old jumper. ;-)

  3. Look at you go, off and designing a pair of mitts! Awesome!

    1. LOL, I was inspired by that thumb gusset. I figured since that was the hardest part I should be able to do it. Now to come up with something a bit fancier. ;-P

  4. Wow, they are fabulous, Karisma! Thanks for sharing your pattern, I might have a go at it in a little while.
