As soon as I saw this pattern, I knew I had to have (and make) it!
I was looking for something I could include in KitKat’s 7th birthday giveaway on Instagram. This pattern came up but I went with Labby instead. Except that I still wanted to knit these mittens, no matter what. Maybe they’ll be for my Crazy Cat Lady Secret Santa this year…
I saw this pattern a while ago and earmarked it as a gift for… someone. I finally know who I’m making it for; let the party commence!
Emma over at Puddleside Musings has sent me a few hanks of hand-dyed yarn over the last couple of years. I’ve had vague ideas for them but then it came to April and I realised how Eastery this yarn (which her mum dyed and called Confetti Cake) looks. I decided it would make great spring-time fingerless mitts.
I like knitting things like mittens even though I can’t use them myself. When I saw this pattern, I immediately added it to the list of things I could make for Emma over at Puddleside Musings. (Totoro and sloths are two of the things I know she likes.)
Another pattern that I just had to make as soon as I saw it! And since we were hosting a giveaway for KitKat’s 7th birthday, I decided this would be the perfect opportunity.
I’ve been wanting to knit myself a cardigan or a sweater for a long time, now. Well, it’s more like I struggle to find clothing in my size, and knitting my own seemed like the next best option.
