At this time of year my feelings are at war. Half of me is a little bit sad as summer draws to a close (I love summer), but the sadness doesn’t last long as it is soon overpowered by the sense that with winter comes winter knitting – Yay!!! More specifically, the part of winter knitting I love most is preparing my Christmas gift knitting. A couple of years ago, hats topped my gift knit list. Last year, Mitts dominated. And this love affair seems set to last another year. I just love knitting mitts, they have everything I love about knitting socks but take half the time to knit!!! You can’t have too many pairs of mitts – which is what makes them a great go-to git knit. One size pretty much fits all so there’s no giving the game away having to ask for someone’s shoe size! You can go grazy with the colours. I personally love having loads of pairs of mitts as it means I can leave them in my various coat pockets without worrying!
Last year I released 3 mitt patterns to my Rav Store. Today they were joined by 2 new patterns; Natalia (top right in above pic) and Briony (bottom middle). All 5 patterns can be found in the Knit Mitts E-Book for a bargain price of $9.75
