My friend, Leah, sent me an early birthday present. We don’t normally exchange gifts, however, I sent her a pair of socks for her birthday in July. She’s a crocheter, sewist, wife, mother, (just a few of her talents) and dabbles in other crafty things and surprises.
Do you have guests coming to your home during the Thanksgiving and/or Christmas holidays?
I do. So I made up an information sheet with our WiFi password, home phone number, and address so if they need access to these things, they can find it quickly. In case of an emergency, the home phone number and street address is right there.
It fits in a 5 x 8 frame I got from the dollar store and sits on the nightstand in the guest bedroom.
This was a fun pattern and used less than a ball of Knit Picks Stroll fingering weight yarn. This Duchess Heather is a rich, royal heathery purple. I probably used a bit more than half. (I so need a scale!)
The finished mitts look rather nondescript until on the hand. The ribbing adds a nice vertical detail.
Since both mitts are the same (no difference between the left and right ones), it’s quite easy to get into the rhythm and finish them quickly.
