Fiber Arts Friday: Handmade for Christmas

For this year's annual Dirty Santa gift exchange with my family, I decided to make a Beer Mitt.


I'm not sure when that I first saw this, but I thought it was simple and clever.  (published in Knitty about three years ago.)


I pulled out two complimentary balls of left-over yarn and made a couple of swatches.

I settled on knitting the largest size, with smaller needles.  If I do this pattern again, I think working in something that is super-wash would make this project a bit more practical.


What have you been up to?

Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

Interesting, but not for me I think. I don't drink much in the way of canned drink and never drink beer.
