Be the Butterfly mittens started as a mitten kit that I designed for upcoming fibre festivals.
With the spread of Covid-19 our shows were cancelled and I have been struggling to cope emotionally and physically with our new reality.
I know what will make me feel better and that is to give something to all of you!
I have decided that the Butterfly mitten wants to be free for all of my knitting friends during this difficult time.
So, keep on knitting my friends and remember the strength & beauty of the fragile butterfly.
Much love to you all!
