I just fell in LOVE with these mittens down at Laura's Knit Shop....
I decided that I just HAD to figure out how to crochet some....a very difficult task.....after a night of many hours on the internet and some trial and error I figured out how to do it (and although my yarn is not as pretty as hers is they turned out quite nice)....
I had to use smaller yarn, alter the pattern a little, use a tapestry stitch technique with a single crochet stitch worked through the posts of the lower stitch and voila!!
They are super cozy inside with an alpaca lining.....
This is all I have been wanting to do lately.....but it's been so worth it.....Bring on the snow!!!
THE U-Pick GARDEN will be closing August 20th. This will be the last year the garden will be open to the public. Next year I'll be operating as a CSA, supplying about 20 regular customers with weekly boxes. Thank you for your support over the last 8 years, but it's time to try something new.
To get a copy of my book, "How To Grow Vegetables In Sitka, Alaska" just give me a call....The books are $20 plus tax. If you live out of town and want me to mail you a copy, you can mail a check for $25.60 to:
