The Quimper Hitty human has been wanting to try the Tiny Selbu Mitten pattern, which is a free download from Ravelry, thanks to MirreVirre from Trondheim, Norway. Rose was keen to help…

…and of course the Quimper Hitty cats are always willing to get involved when there is string to be played with!!

After getting lost in the chart, we ripped out the first ten rows, and started again.  The first finished mitten has the decreases at the left of the chart knitted through the back loops, which ended up looking wrong in the finished mitten.  In the second mitten we knitted the decreases through the front loops and it looks pretty good.  I don’t know if this is because I read the chart wrongly or if it is an artifact of my knitting with the yarn in the left hand. Rose likes the finished mittens, but wants to try and make a pair that is a tiny bit tinier so they fit Hitty hands…

    • I wonder if the front and back would stick together if I tried that? In any case, the red is pure wool but the white is wool/silk/bamboo so I think it would shrink deferentially…I think I will look for thinner yarn and smaller needles.

    • We do amuse ourselves, that’s the main thing. Rose is very encouraging, as is the knitting genius of the family. Otherwise I might just end up with lots of piles of yarn scraps and no finished knitting projects!

  1. Mittens for Kittens!! You could start a new craze!! Rose is looking as lovely as ever and I am flat out amazed at those very little mittens. The Quimper Human is rather extraordinary!!

    • Any smaller and the human might need stronger spectacles! I did have to extract the kitty from the mitten for the photograph – a lump inside a mitten is not very photogenic!
