November Knit Something of the Month

I finished up my November Knit Something of the Month Mitts over the weekend also!  These are the Zombie Vixen Mitts (free pattern), done in Sanguine Gryphon's Skinny Bugga in Longhorned Beetle.  I knit them on size US 0's (2mm) to get 9 stitches per inch so they'd fit my hands.  Baggy mitts don't work well when you try to use your hands.  The only other change I made was to twist the stitches in the "sutures" in the cables (the little X's that join the two wiggly lines) to make them show up a little more against the background.  Otherwise, I think they're pretty much knit to the pattern.  Fun design and a fast knit!

I've just got December to go and then I've finished up 2012's Knit Something of the Month.  (August got skipped because I was working on Camp Loopy and Ravellenic Games projects that month.  I decided that was enough for that month.)  I am planning on doing sweaters next year, but I'll do one sweater every two months, instead of a sweater a month.  I haven't started pulling out stash yet to see how many sweater quantities I have, but I'll be doing that soon.  Honestly, I could probably do this for a couple of years without any new purchases.  I'm going to really try to do some stash busting with this!

Gorgeous mitts! Your 2012 knitting program was an inspiration. I tweaked it for myself and morphed it into finishing a UFO each month in addition to other knitting.
