Mitten Redux

Okay, so here we have version... I've lost track of what version I'm up to... the latest version of the modified Axel Mitts. I think I have it perfected now, though it has yet to be blocked. And NO IRON this time! But something tells me I'm not going to have enough yarn to finish the second mitt, hmm...

So apparently I've been blocking wrong all this time. If only I had paid more attention I would have known that you should NEVER steam ribbing!!! No wonder all my mitten cuffs expanded so much! I've been on a knitting hiatus, but when I start up again I have a couple of pairs of mitts to redo. :P

Oh, and since I feel obligated to include some pictures, here are the baby booties I crocheted for my cousin's adorable baby girl! I got the pattern came from a Japanese book. Luckily Japanese crocheters are big on diagrams. I was a little nervous about it coming out like the picture while in progress, but once it was done it came together pretty well. Yaaaaay... (Hopefully they fit!)
