"It's Winter Somewhere" Mitts

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

Spring finally seems to be making an appearance here in Seattle! Welcoming the sunshine and warmer weather usually means saying goodbye to my knitting mojo for a few months. Most people around here are craving flip flops this time of year and not wool hats or chunky cowls.

But somewhere in the world (New Zealand in this case) the seasons are about to shift towards colder weather where cozy knits are appreciated more than tank tops.

These Marble Arch Mitts were made for a recent Kiwi swap partner. I hope they keep her warm during the upcoming winter season!

And here's your gratuitous 'knits on a fence' picture :)!

I am SOOO OVER THE TOP jealous of your amazing knitting skills! How long did it take to make those wrist warmers? How much yardage of yarn?

I spin...and I need to get better and using the yarn I make!

Good point- it's not spring everywhere! You know, with all of this sewing I've lost sight of knitting. And I miss it. I really need to pick up the needles again!
