If you purchase 5 patterns from my Ravelry Store at the same time (add them all to your cart before you check out), the least expensive one will be free.

With everything we do, we leave traces on this planet.

And not only on this planet - but also on the Moon! Did you know that the tracks the Apollo 14 crew left on the moon surface are still very visible? Especially the ones from their Modularized Equipment Transporter (MET), fondly known as the “rickshaw”. Those traces can still be seen from far away. They meander across the lunar plains - a reminder of the visitors that came so long ago.

The Moondust Mittens (and also the matching hat) resemble these traces, and I’m saluting the Apollo crew and everyone else who ventures into the unknown.
