It was a dark and stormy night.......

It was a dark and stormy night................dark and rainy all day long. Sometimes the rain would beat on the house sometimes it was a gentle tap. It was a good day for knitting. Darling Daughter is home for a couple days with her knitting. She knit past the thumb then up to the decrease point while I layered and pinned the tractor cowboy quilt then I did some machine quilting on the glorified nine patch. When I was ready for my afternoon coffee she was ready to decrease the end of her mitten. I had 3 rows to catch up with my grey mittens. We finished the point of the mitten together then on to the thumbs.
 Remove the contrasting yarn pick up those stitches and a couple more then shift the stitches evenly on 3 needles, knit a row decrease on each needle then knit for the length of the thumb and decrease again, cut yarn, weave into knitting and done!!!!
 They do look like warm mittens and oh so soft, Malabrigo yarn. There is probably enough yarn left for a head band. I'm so proud of her.

Lovely post - and well done to your DD on her mitten knitting. So good to see 'the next generation' picking up these skills.
