All we’ve been hearing about lately is COVID-19, and most of us are practicing social distancing to protect the most vulnerable in our population. All of my patterns are 50% off until things are back to normal. Just type in the code TOGETHER (can be used more than once). Stay healthy and in the words of Elizabeth Zimmermann, “Knit on with confidence and hope through all crises”.

Here in Northern Minnesota, autumn skipped over us. We went straight from warm summer to brisk cold practically overnight. Hopefully the weather is a little nicer where you are, but if you’re gearing up for a cold, long winter, I have just the pattern for your hands! The Seersucker Mittens are a quick and simple worsted weight mitten in three sizes. The stitch is suitable for men and women alike. The pattern is fully written and charted and has been tested and approved.
