Happy Spring, all! In spite of the warming weather, I’ve got mittens on the brain, so I’m dipping into the backlog of finished knits to show and tell about.
I knit these mittens for my sister Lisa. I gave her the first one in December 07, and didn’t get the second one to her until December 08. Luckily, she’s really forgiving.
These mittens have the darling-est details: the wee birds, the blossoms, the braided bits on the cuff. Plus, they’re great fun to knit.
If, like me, the Spring-ish weather hasn’t dulled your passion for mitten-knitting, this is a good day for you. Julia Vesper is releasing her kick-ass Chevron Love mitten kits. In the sea of amazing mittens that was the Great Mitten Swap of Aught Eight (the same swap that spawned my Elinor’s Mittens pattern, Elinor’s Vespergyle pattern, and Minty’s Marion mittens), Julia’s were the ones I couldn’t stop petting. Do yourself a favor and pick up a kit!
