A Stitcher's Wardrobe: Mittens

 Well, almost mittens.


I made these two at a time using my pattern for Fried Chicken Mittens (instructions included for the fingerless version).  The wool was dyed by me, including the embroidered detail around the palm.




Lots more happening around here, including five shirts cut and partially sewn, another denim skirt cut, a sweater underway, socks underway, a hat completed, two brooches thrifted, and not one, but two bathrobes thrifted, and bathrobes were not on the list.

And more!  The Common Cod Fiber Guild is holding their 5th annual FiberCamp Boston on March 14th through the 16th.  I will be there with a few of my designs.  From their website:

 As part of FiberCamp, on Saturday at 4PM, we will host
a Designer Fashion Show with classic and brand-new designs from
Julia Farwell-Clay, Misa Erder, Thea Coleman, Bristol Ivy,
Amy Christoffers, Ellen Mason, and Alison Green.
Location: MIT Tang Center, Building E51, register in 3rd floor lounge,
2 Amherst Street, Cambridge

Maybe you will be there too?

Lovely! I have some of your yarn that I've intended to make fried chicken mittens out of, but haven't got there yet. I wish I were going to FiberCamp. Gale tells great stories of how much fun it is.

Perfect mitts of this time of year when you need something new and fun to wear on your cold hands! Love them.

I love that green. I bet you hand dyed it. You should sell that color.
