There is a delightful-looking mitten garland on the KnitPicks.com website. It looks like a very do-able project. I need to make four of these garlands...hopefully before June when I hope to start this year's Christmas Knitting!
Here are mittens 96 and 95:
First two mittens for Advent Garland
My plan is to knit up three or four per week until done. They take about an hour each to knit, I think. I will time the next one.
If they go really well, I might even make a garland for the old homestead....
