Girls Purple Mittens – Off the Needles and Into the Shop

2013-04-01 22.29.13 2013-04-01 22.26.36 2013-04-01 22.28.57So here they are in their finished state and just after entering the Etsy shop. The mittens in this photo are for Ages 4-6. They’re knitted in an Acrylic yarn so are machine washable as well as making them affordable. They are nice and cosy and my daughter has already put in her order for a pair! They’ll definitely be on her little fingers going back to school next week seems as Spring isn’t quite showing up yet. At least the flowers on these mittens will add a splash of colour even if the real ones won’t! You can find them hereĀ https://www.etsy.com/listing/128144910/hand-knitted-girls-mittens

Looks like it’s going to be a busy week ahead for me! Various projects on the go in various stages of completion. First up for me to finish are these adorable little mittens. They’re for a child aged 4-6 but other sizes are as always available. All these little cuties need are some adorable little flowers to top them off. These should be available in the Etsy shop later on today!

Next on the “To Do List” for this week are these lovely soft convertible mitts. One is completed and being blocked as I type and I’ll be casting on the second mitt as soon as the little purple ones are finished. These should be available in the shop by the end of the week all things going to plan!

This Wave Pattern Cowl is my “On the Go” project that lives in my handbag and gets pulled out whenever I’m out and about and get chance to sneak in a row or two of knitting. It’s been on the needles for a while now so I’ll either have to get out more or just finish it off at home! This will also hopefully be my first published pattern so once I have that up online I’ll be sure to post the links here!

And last but certainly not least are a hat and scarf pattern I’m working on for a customer. Really looking forward to getting the needles out on this one and doing up a few sample swatches. She has some lovely ideas of what she wants so am very excited about putting my ideas together with hers and seeing the finished project! It’s what I love most about knitting design, you can never be 100% sure what your finished project is going to look like until you’ve actually finished it. I’ll definitely be keeping you up to date with this as it unfolds!

As well as all this I have college projects to get done, a house to tidy, a four year old to entertain and enjoy my last bit of holiday time before getting back to the grindstone next week! May be a good idea for me to get a move on then!
