Blue Woodstack Mittens

Blue Woodstack Mittens - NoodleheadYesss! Mittens! And just in time for fall and winter. I can hardly believe it!!! How did I plan this so well you say? Well, I didn’t. I actually started these mittens back in February. So there you have it.Blue Woodstack Mittens - Noodlehead

I made these for my daughter Natalie after I realized that the blue is just the most beautiful with her eyes. I was gifted the yarn by my friend Amanda and I’m so glad to have a finished project! Natalie is super excited to have her mittens finally.

I didn’t spend any time on them over the summer, except for one weekend, but it was nice to know that the project was there are ready for when I was. This fall and winter I’m hoping to start a new knitting project or two and try to keep something going instead of taking a big break and forgetting things. Next up is an arm knit pillow that I bought yarn for last year and then hopefully a shawl. Blue Woodstack Mittens - Noodlehead

I’m very thankful to be able to knit. It’s something that I never thought I could do. For me it’s a nice break from sewing and an opportunity to learn new things all the time. Well, I still do in sewing, but for knitting it feels a little different. Blue Woodstack Mittens - Noodlehead

    I went from sewing to quilting to knitting to quilting to sewing. Now I am just trying to keep all of them going and learning to play nice with each other! Knitting is losing right now.

    I started with knitting. I really enjoyed it, but it doesn’t get cold enough here. I want to crochet an afghan. Mostly, I love sewing. I love your patterns because they were some of the first sewing experiences I had. I’m self-taught and didn’t know I should fear zippers. Ha Ha Ha! I want to make that Range Backpack next. You have such a great design aesthetic. Keep doing your thing!

    Beautiful mittens—wool mittens are the best, especially when someone knits them for you.

    I love Natalie’s mittens. Great finish, Anna! I also enjoy knitting as a break from sewing. (Plus, sometimes it’s portable!) great photos, as usual!
