Soooo…. Thursday night we were hit by a massive thunderstorm which knocked power out for 20 hours. But we were the lucky ones, further south they got 5-7 inches of rain in just a few hours. So while I was home trying to keep baby chickens warm without a heat lamp much of the rest of northern VT was closed and/or under water.
Needless to say, all that knitting and pattern writing I had talked about did not go according to plan. But I’ve (mostly) recovered, and I’m happy to announce that the first pattern in the Time on my Hands e-book is now available!
The patterns in this book will be released one at a time over the summer, with the full collection available by autumn (it’ll be September or October depending on other deadlines) There will be 8 patterns which are also available individually, and one surprise pattern which will only be available through the collection. The e-book costs only $18 which is a significant savings over the single PDFs.
The patterns will all be hand-related: mittens, gloves, fingerless mitts, and wrist warmers. Along with women’s patterns there’s a children’s mitten pattern, a men’s glove pattern, and some unisex fingerless mitts. There will be cables, lace, color work, and texture. In other words, there will be a little something for everyone.
Play Time mittens are striped kids’ mittens with i-cord ties so they don’t get lost or separated.
