A photo essay of what's been filling up my blog silence.
I have been working on this idea for almost a year, now: mix-n-match mittens, gloves, glittens, and fingerless gloves/mittens, all in one booklet. My original idea was to offer 4-6 different cuff and hand back options which could be used interchangeably with each other, in two weights of yarn and in all the above-mentioned styles.
Turns out, that is a LOT of work. Lots of samples to knit. LOTS of knitting. Wow.
I have not given up on the idea--I am quite enjoying the challenge. But I have decided to release the patterns in smaller chunks. Once I have several patterns completed and tested, I will release a collection.
The first pattern I will be releasing is the "Mermaid Tails and Dragon Scales" design combo. There will still be mittens, gloves, glittens, and fingerless mittens and gloves in the pattern, designed for aran-weight yarn. I will include a fingering-weight plain liner pattern. And here is what the gloves look like:
Are you excited? I am. The pattern is coming soon! :-)
