And not the mittens you think I'm talking about. I've been knitting this awesome mitten garland. She published this pattern weeks ago, and right during the perfect time - as I was totally obsessed with finding a cool Advent calender for the kids. I didn't want to do the paper ones, the pre-printed fabric panels also seemed lame and annoying to make. I had an idea to make a felted tree with little bags on it.... and then saw this!
At first I was knitting two mittens for each child for each day, but then I couldn't figure out how to hang them or how it would work. So - I'm close to being done, and I would be if I didn't want to mix the colors up in a certain way. 6 more to knit!
