Happy Christmas Eve

Happy Christmas Eve! I hope everyone's excited for Christmas tomorrow.

Spent the few days with Tim to do chalkboard art together drawing Christmas theme using Funko Pop's Santa and Rudolph.

Candy Cane Mitten Pattern

My second attempt to make mittens for the winter!

I had mittens that I was wearing it for almost a decades and still wanted to continue to use them. So to carry on, I made knitted mittens and use my old mitten as inside lining to make good use of it.

This post includes free pattern to make Candy Cane Mittens without the lining.

I had these grey mittens from high school that I got it as a gift. After using it for 17 years now, it was time to make changes. I re-used this mitten as lining for my new knitted mitten so I modified to make it smaller to fit, remove any tags.
