I’ve recently begun to collect blue and white serving ware for my home, specifically pretty little teapots and cups. I love sipping a hot cup of tea from my delicate china every day, whether it’s in the morning, afternoon or evening. There’s something striking about the pairing of blue and white--cheery, nautical and bit English country. These fingerless mitts remind me of this charming pottery--elegant, feminine and at the same time, practical enough for everyday use.

What are the Twelve Knits of Christmas?

At Wool & Honey, we believe that the best way to celebrate the holidays is with a handcrafted gift. Something special--a little slip of a silk scarf, a pair of fuzzy, wooly mitts, a handknit ornament--that with a little time, a little money and a little foresight could become the most treasured gift you give all year.

Every Friday, you’ll receive an email revealing a special pattern we’ve written exclusively for the shop--one that can easily be tackled within the course of a week. (With a little effort, of course--these projects don’t knit themselves!) These patterns are super simple, even for beginner knitters. We make it that way because we realize that in addition to your knitting, there’s a good chance you’ve got a few other things to tend to between now and the holidays. (Ahem!) Knitting should be fun, not work. And certainly not stressful. Most of these projects are One-Skein Wonders-a pretty fantastic way to see light at the end of the knitting tunnel, even when you’re elbow-deep in cookie dough. With 12 full weeks ahead of us, if you pace yourself and try your best to keep up, you’ll have a nice collection of gifts come December 25th.
