Susie's Mitts

I decided to make Susie some warm fingerless mittens since she requested some.  I have completed all the parts to this new project.  I just need to sew up the edges and assemble the pieces.  I have read that it is best to block the item before sewing them up but that would require more time.  Time to pin down the item, spray it with water and then wait for it to dry.  Since it is cold out I believe this would require extra time.

I really like this baby alpaca yarn that I am working with so thus said if Susie loses these mitts I will never make her anything again.  That is until she gives me moneys to buy new yarn because we know yarn warms the heart.


  1. what means "block the item"?

  2. lay them out - pin them down to hold there shape cuz they curl right now and blocking helps take out the kinks

    I can prolly finish them tomorrow afternoon but i dont know what time your leaving

  3. where do i find cute buttons?
