Gingerbread Mitts - in 4 flavors - will become a staple of your wardrobe and your gift box! With versions to suit your box of odds and ends and versions to suit the most casual or dressy outfit, you will find yourself going back again and again to this pattern! (note: the shawl pictured on model is Melpomene, which is not part of this collection.)

Read on about my project! This is the fifth pattern in an eBook subscription.

One knitter.

One box of yarn.

Endless possibilities.

Welcome to my oddments project! Everyone has them: stray balls and skeins of yarn here and there. They’re different weights and different colors. Definitely not a sweater’s worth of anything, let alone a shawl’s worth or a pair of socks. You can’t imagine what to do with them, but you don’t want to throw them away. Well, I’m no different; Kathy Elkins of WEBS sent me a box of yarn to swatch. It stared at me reproachfully and demanded my respect: riches of wool, silk, alpaca and other blends. And an idea kept niggling at my mind (for a couple of years, no less). And so I finally gave in.

This is my project: to use this box of yarn and to respect the fiber. The rules are simple: I use what’s in the box, no matter the weight and the color, no matter what the fiber content is (luckily for me, there’s some really nice stuff). I can add buttons and other little embellishments, but that’s it. I may not go out and buy other yarn or beg Kathy for anything else. I have 18 balls of yarn and my imagination. There will be 15-18 projects. Some will be easy to dream up. Others? Not so much! But fun knitting for you, all the same!

The patterns for this eBook will be delivered to subscribers within a subscription period ending November 15, 2014. There is no specific delivery time for each pattern, but look for the first pattern in mid November 2013. All patterns will have charts (if needed) and written instructions, and you will be able to make them out of oddments. These are small projects, not big ones: the perfect size for an evening or two of knitting in front of the fire or sitting on the porch sipping a lemonade! So…knitters: pull out those oddments!
