Mittens became a new knitting challenge for me when I decided to make a pair like the ones Bella wears in the Twilight movie. I needed a Twilight-themed gift for someone who loves the books and movie series.
The first mitten worked out great which tickled me no end. The second mitten went well until I reached the last little bit—the thumb. Somehow I got distracted and the thumb ended up being a nub. That’s what impatience and not paying attention will do for you.

Not to be thwarted by a mitten, I started over and knit a whole new pair since I have no clue as to how to fix the original thumb nub. This time I managed to get everything knitted properly. The pattern was created and offered free by Marielle Henault of the Subliminal Rabbit blog.
I also gave t-shirt transfers a try by using a project found at All Things Thrifty blog. This was relatively easy, a simple matter of printing a mirror image of the graphic on transfer paper and carefully cutting it out and ironing on to a white t-shirt.
