I made mittens!

So I haven't been quilting but I have been knitting. I started going to a group every Thursday night. It's been very fun, and the ladies are so nice.

Chevron Love Mittens!

These are my Chevron Love Mittens! I purchased a pattern from Knitterly Things. Julia (the store owner) designed the pattern. It's amazing. And for those who think they could never do something this complicated..it isn't. This is my first colourwork. But not my last.

I've already got some more patterns lined up on Ravelry. Swedish Fish and Cupcakes by SpillyJane! But I must finish Christmas gifts first.

Yay knitting!

when i pick up needles i love the feeling of knitting. sadly i live in a rushed mindframe. i must learn to slow down. I could learn a thing or two about slowing down to knit.:-)
I love your mittens!!

Well done! I recently took up knitting and have the pattern and yarn for a few pair of socks that I want to try (so far have stayed w/ a few scarfes and shawls). I need to sign up for a class on the socks, I think.

Hi, I found you from a quilt blog. I'm from Ontario too and love to quilt, crochet, knit and decorate our home. I'm off to check out more of your posts. Please stop by anytime.
Merry Christmas from Halton Hills Ontario.
