I’ve been knitting & crocheting mitts here at Stitchknit. Several custom orders came in just before Thanksgiving and I finished the last pair today. In the process of coming up with the colors, yarn & designs……….I’ve ended up with some mitts that I’ll be able to offer in the shop.
Here’s pictures of what I’ve been up to…………some are already sold, some are in line for pictures and one pair has been added to the Etsy shop this afternoon.
Made extra long, with a bit of crochet at the fingertips….Sold
Custom mitts, size small in wool. Sold

Can’t resist adding a flower occasionally. These are waiting for pics, then will be in the shop. If you’d like to buy these before Christmas, just let me know & I’ll make a listing for you.

Which are you? Do you ponder the yarn and wonder what to do with it……………..
Or, do you have a pattern or idea in mind and then start the search for appropriate yarn?
I’m in the first category. I have the yarn and the ideas just start simmering away. The more I look at the yarn, and start touching it…………the clearer the design becomes.
An acrylic yarn, in a soft shade of tan.
Just listed here, this one isn’t talking to me yet. It would make a good choice for certain flesh tones if one was making dolls or toys. Maybe the Baby Albert jacket from The Knit Stitch book? What would you make with this?
This one is on my desk today, just listed here…..
Color, texture, shimmer…this novelty yarn has all three.
Haven’t played with this one yet. Very slinky, very lightweight. I’m calling it a rust color, but that doesn’t seem to describe it well. Listed as color #4205 on the label, so that doesn’t help at all. What color does this bring to mind?Salmon? Pumpkin? Sometimes it looks a bit like copper to me…..
Any project ideas for this bit of vintage yarn? Wondering about fiber jewelry…………..
My new favorite!
I loved creating this hat. Finally had some time to just ‘play with yarn’. Had a couple starts, where I was looking for the right size hook to go with the yarn I wanted to see as a hat. This combo gave me a hat that is not too lacy looking, but isn’t solid and heavy. Weighs almost nothing!
And, since I can’t leave anything alone, I added a 2 layer crocheted flower on the side that dips down a bit, reminiscent of the hats in the 20′s.
My new favorite. See it in my shop here.
