Knitten a Mitten

anyone who has been following me on facebook has seen my status over the last few days. i’ve been knittin a mitten, not just any mitten but my first mitten, this week i cast on my first cuff, added my first thumb gusset, and almost completed my first mitten. 

almost. see that little guy sticking out there, well he needs a home, hopefully i can finish the thumb tonight and i can start the partner to this little guy.

i dont think you non-knitters have any idea how hard knitting cables on size 4(?ithink)needles with worsted weight yarn is, it’s damn near impossible, and i’ve done it ninety two billion times.
