So, here we are mid-March, and it's feeling pretty spring-like here in the Kingdom. For the last year, as you know if you've been following along, I've been obsessed with mittens. Colourwork mittens, double-knitted mittens, appliquéd and embroidered mittens. Owl mittens, for heaven's sake. I don't think I've completely finished with mittens, but I feel a change coming on. Some new direction is calling. So, today, I offer these:
Cardinal mittens. Based on a photo taken by Michael Simmons, and used with permission.
Usually, if you follow this blog, you know that I'm all about the whimsy. Fun and silly. Childlike. But these are serious mittens. 100% wool. Lovely and warm. Soft. Sized for an adult hand. $40. includes shipping, and the money goes to the Lyndhurst Feral Cat Project. Leave a comment if you're interested. LFCP can accept payment by Paypal. Delivery by Canada Post anywhere in the world.
SOLD!So happy to report that the mittens are going to their new home, The feral cats of Lyndhurst will not go hungry tonight! :)
