mitten interlude

Since I’m not knitting a book design (this very second) I’ve decided to fill a hole in my current winter wardrobe. I only seem to own one pair of mittens. Apparently I loose mittens so fast that if I weren’t knitting them myself other knitters would refuse to make them for me saying I need to learn to take better care of what I have. Luckily I keep knitting mittens for myself out of self-defense. I need those hands frost bite free!


So I’m working up a pair in my favorite shade of green from Bartlett yarns. These mittens are speedy, dense, WARM, and cozy. I know because I made Neil a pair just like this last year. And he doesn’t lose his mittens, so I borrow them when I can’t find mine.

I liked his pair of tree mittens so much I’m not only making a pair for myself. I’ll also be releasing the pattern for them. Hopefully soon! I’m thinking if I don’t release this mitten pattern sometime in February I’ll have missed mitten season for most of the country…

    Obviously, you need to make YOUR mittens with the string to go through your coat sleeves . . . .

  2. They are great! I love that Bartlett Yarn too – very sheepy. :)
