I kind of made this up myself as an experiment. The top came out too pointy, the thumb is too big and the ends were a %@*! to weave in on the inside. And as the SnB'rs told me, babies really don't need thumbs on their mittens, they just need little "sacks" -- sans thumb. But I learned from this!!!
I have to get the yarn for the Hourglass Sweater, so in the meantime I'm thinking of doing the ubiquitous Clapotis from Knitty that everyone did last year. I'd use some kid mohair that I got from Brook's Farm at Rhinebeck last year. Or I was going to do the Branching Out scarf , also from Knitty. Not sure which yet, but that Knitty sure is a valuable resource!!!
Ciao for now!
