I saw some tiny mittens on someone's blog (so sorry, I can't remember whose!) and followed the link to this pattern. They looked so cute and goodness knows I have lots of extra bits of sock yarn around! So I cast on last night while watching the Survivor China finale and had this little cutie finished before the show ended. Wouldn't it be cute on a holiday gift tag or card? Super easy too -- since it isn't going to be worn or handled much, I just tucked all the ends up into the mitten instead of weaving anything in.
Other than knitting tiny mittens, I've been making cookies with my mom & sisters and reading voraciously. I'm loving The Golden Compass and I'm really glad I bought the whole set so I can continue reading this trilogy during the holiday!
