Thank you kelley! I couldn't find all the mitten vids on one page to access (like the page that has all your sock tutes) and I had a time of it finding all the mitten videos -- they seemed scattered.
anyway, thank you so much for the sock tutorial! It is fabulous.

If you are looking for more videos to do (and I *hope* you are!) may I suggest a couple? ;^)

I would love to see how you make your 2 socks on Magic Loop! I've been shy of trying your toe up socks on 1 needle pattern because I had a bad experience trying it (it was a cuff down version) with another instruction and just got "lost" halfway through! So discouraging after all t hat ribbing, haha. anyway, a video on 2 toe ups would be great.

Another would be how to make toes on socks, and how to add fingers to make gloves!

Thanks again, looking forward to finishing these mittens :^)

Hi Kelley! I am loving the mittens and the videos are just Wonderful. I'm a novice knitter, but have done a couple socks. In those instructions, the decreases at the toe were: knit to last 3 stitches, k2tog, k1 then on next needle, k1 ssk. This seems to be opposite "leaning wise" to your decreases for our mitten. I'm just curious (always trying to learn why things are the way they are) -- is this just a preference? Have you seen the decreases done the other way, and like the look better as knit to last 3 stitches, ssk, k1 then on next needle, k1 k2tog?? I hope you can clear up this confusion for me. Thanks!!!
