I cast on for my Offering Mitts on February 19, but several projects got in the way.  What's new?

Today I sat down and made myself work on the project most of the day.  I would say that this mitt is about 1/2 way finished.  I can probably finish it tomorrow... since I will have plenty of uninterrupted knitting time. This pic isn't perfect, but I had to do the pic in artificial light (ugh)... here is my progress so far.

 

 

I am knitting these in Palette in Bittersweet Heather, using Size 1 needles. I am pushing to finish this first mitt, because the pair are a birthday gift for my DGD1 for her 15th birthday, on April 20.  I was a bit worried, but right now, I think I can finish them in a few more days.  My problems with the pattern:  1) Lace intimidates me.  2) Using fingering weight yarn intimidates me. 3) Using a Size 1 needle intimidates me. But 4) So far the pattern has worked fine, with no big surprises.  Hope you like my mitts. ♥s

See, when I first saw this pattern I just assumed there would be a finger ring. Susan is great about modifying patterns so they are better, isn't she? ♥c
Knit: Thanks! I was putting my finished first mitt over on Ravelry and saw where someone else did it, so I did, too. Only I didn't put mine at the finger tip, but at the last ending triangle about 1/2" in from the tip. It doesn't show from the outside so much.♥s
That's really clever.
I just did it again, Susan. I made a comment and closed it without posting. Your darling ballerina is going to be tickled with this birthday present. ♥c
Cheryl I thought I was the only one who does that.
All the time! ♥c
I think I alter nearly EVERY pattern I knit. ♥s
Not alter just making improvements and adding personal style.
This little ring is definitely am improvement! ♥s
I definitely say so. Now she doesn't have to worrying about it flipping back. Right?
Absolutely! ♥s
I think she will too! ♥s
