First blood on the Advent Calendar ornaments! I finished knitting the Advent Garland yesterday and bought some nice little red buttons for it today. However, when I got home, I realized I need to buy another needle to sew the buttons on the garland, since they eyes on all the ones I have are either too small to thread the yarn through or too large to go through the button holes. Le sigh. So I decided to knit the first ornament for the Advent Garland. This is the Mitten. I used some red yarn leftover from another project and a tiny bit of white for embroidery. It's a really quick knit. But then, it's only a couple of inches tall, right? Still, it's super cute. I'm looking forward to having it as part of our Christmas decor this year.
