knitted mittens

My practical self has decided that large knitted things just aren't going to work for me. I have this thing with finishing things and crossing them off the list. And big knitting projects take too long. I've decided to stick to smaller projects like mittens, hats, baby booties and socks. Well here are my first pair of mittens. Check. Again, my knitting skills are extremely novice but I've now mastered knitting in the round! It's really pretty simple, but I feel like it looks hard with four needles flying around. At least I fool Paul. I found the basic pattern for these mittens here. I'm happy with how they turned out, although I need a little help with my finishing skills. Any tips from knitters out there?

Those are so cute! You are so talented. I've been trying to come up with a project that I can do when I'm watching tv or traveling and I was thinking of trying knitting. Do you have any recommendations on how to get started?

Wow, that is great! I love the color!

After trying to do this sweater after so long, I think I may switch to smaller projects, too. I'm losing patience!

Thanks for the call the other day--sorry I missed you! I'll try to catch you this weekend!
