Scrappy Mittens

Stephen West has a new mitten pattern.

Collect a colorful pile of DK and worsted weight yarns to knit these cozy winter mittens. Select a main color to frame the painterly contrast color pops for the bold brick motif. You can customize the length of the cuff and hand by simply working more pattern repeats as you knit in the round. These beginner friendly mittens are ideal for your first colorwork project because you only work with one color at a time. Simple stripes in garter stitch and stockinette stitch are accented with slip stitches to create the colorful bricks. Enjoy stash busting or collect some new yarn to knit these special mittens for yourself or a loved one.

You can purchase the pattern on Ravelry.

We have a new yarn coming from Malabrigo next week.

Noventa is made of 100% Superwash Merino wool and comes with our particular singly ply twist. This provides the yarn with a slightly irregular texture which, along with a hand-dyed technique, produce a very complete product. The palette is quite bright and traslucid due to our dyeing techniques and the superwash process.

Noventa has been added to the website so it’s ready when the yarn arrives.

I was up early and worked from home. 
- website updates
-started this post
-worked on a newsletter

Then I did some errands. I ran out and did a bit of Christmas shopping which is very early for me 😀. Dinner is in the oven and I’m back to writing.

The new Della Q bags should be arriving next week. 🤞 

The Maker’s Satchel is online for preorder.

Rucksacks are online as well.
This is the Rucksack with Cubbies inside. The Cubbies are sold separately.

Dad and Lucy just left and it’s time to sign off. The newsletter isn’t finished so I’m going to work on it for a few minutes before getting back to my sock. I’m at the heel shaping.
