I have finished knitting the give-away mitts and drawn the winner ! I shall be sending them off right away ( but first , apologies to the winner for misspelling your name in the photo.) It was really fun knitting these very sunny & vernal tones, and for some reason, these colors had me dreaming of my little potted lemon trees , and my tall and rambling English roses out on the deck garden. Yet, it still is only the first half of March, and no blooms yet.
I don’t know how to say this gracefully, but I blunder’d badly and didn’t notice until nearly done with the second mitt, that it is two rows shorter than the first. This is a major embarrassment, but there’s no time to knit them over, so they will just have to remain as they are ~~ a statement of my quirky and asymmetric personality !
Watch this space as they say, for soon I will be posting a gallery of photos of all the knitters’ mitts, who have participated in the first test-knit-along of my first three patterns over in this little group . I wouldn’t be having this give-away party had I not felt so good about the mitts, and only because so many stepped up to actually knit them, some many pair !
And thank you kind readers of Yarnings, well as the knitters of the mitts, for posting in the give-away, and being a part of my celebration of writing my first patterns, however small they are. I know this will be a memory of encouragement which I will draw upon for months to come.
Now I can look forward to the next knit & give-away,
which is inevitable,
because I had so much fun with this one !!!
