Mitts for Jenny K.
I knitted these beautiful fem mitts for my niece Jenny in February and according to Jenny they are loved :) I found the pattern (and the stolen picture) at the Rainey Sisters (FREE pattern). They are a fun knit and I did get to learn a few skills. I have to admit that I knit the right mitt 2 times. I figured out the graphing and counting on the chart when I had to move the thumb gusset to the other side... that's when I realized I had done it wrong on the right mitt :( When I finished up the left and saw how much prettier it looked done the right way I started ripping and redid the right one so I could send Jenny a perfect set. Now that I've figured it out I think it is an easy pattern. I made them out of Baby Uhl which was the perfect weight and the perfect yarn for Jenny since she is laundry challenged ;)
