    Default Can anyone knit me a pair of these?

    They are called "smitten" mittens. I really really want a pair for a gift. Is anyone up to taking this on? I am willing to pay for them of couse and will need them mailed to me at my expense.

    For Xmas or Valentine's Day? I'm a little busy now - but could whip up one after the holidays...I'm just guessing you need it sooner!

    Here's a pattern...for a bulky yarn version that would be very quick.

    I wanted them for a Christmas gift. I know it is late to ask but I already placed an order from a kijiji add and she missed her deadline and does not answer emails.....so i am kinda stuck.

    I am pretty sure that these mitts will command attention wherever they go. I will be sure to send them to you. Such a cute gift. My DS1 wants a pair for me and him. Melts my heart!

    Geez tail. You drinking Red Bull and knitting? That was fast.

    I am slow compared to my sister LOL. Those were on 5 dpns, which is my least favourite method.

    BTW knitting is easy, guage is the difficult part, well that and starting over out of frustration when you make a mistake. Unlike crochet sometimes you mess up so bad it is just easier to begin again.

    Yeah I have heard that before. I've had a lesson. There was a lot of head shaking, mumbling under the breath and an hour later I still had no skills. I'm a fine detail person. I like to make tiny stitches with a needle. I can't even get my hands to hold two needles and the yarn all at once. One day.....
