New Pattern!


I've finally had time to work up one of the designs that have been bouncing around in my head. I was inspired by the Cable & Moss Stitch pattern form Charlene Schurch's Sensational Socks, and worked this up into a pair of fingerless gloves. I used some Claudia's Handpainted fingering weight yarn that I got for X-mas. The colorway is called Tea Cup -- a pretty white with bits of blue.

I'm trying to decide on a name. I was going to call them Blue Willow Mitts, but there is a pattern of that name already on Ravelry. My Ravelry friends have suggested quite a few, here are the ones I like best:
  • Willow Dream
  • Willow Wear
  • Wedgewood Mitts
  • Cuppa Tea
I Have to decide in a few days -- the testers are wrapping things up, and the pattern will be ready to be posted in a day or so!

Lovely mitts. They look really warm.

Mine are coming along nicely! Thanks for letting me test knit.

I really like Cuppa Tea, but prolly because I am also a big tea drinker, lol. If you could photograph your mitts with your hands around a tea mug, that would look really great!

All done with mine, I know you will pick a name you like. I still like "cuppa tea". :D

I like the name Wedgewood Mitts - it's always goods to have something in the name that actually describes the article.

I just discovered your blog when I visited Smariek's blog. I do like the name Cuppa Tea, it just evokes such lovely thoughts. I'll be sure to check back with your blog.
