I participated in NaKniMitMo this month. NaKniMitMo is (inter)National Knitting Mittens Month. I have had a wonderful time and learned a new knitting technique - cables! This was also my first pair of mittens, but I wouldn't exactly call making mittens a technique. It's just nice to know that I can do it. The pattern I chose is called "Bella's Mittens" and was inspired by the mittens worn by the character Bella in the movie Twilight. I named my personal pair "SaraBella Mittens" and I love how they came out. These have been what I call a "free project" because I did not need to buy anything to make them. The yarn was a Christmas gift, I already had the needles, and the pattern was free. I love free projects!
Here is a picture of my mittens in progress:
