looking back over the posts for the month of december, it’s been a month of joyful red—why stop now with one last pattern to squeeze into 2014?
which is also now finished and complete with final photos—if purchased previously, you can redownload the final version any time now from wherever you purchased it.
emily has been tallying the numbers for the scholarship fund and says, “it looks like we have collected $2,665 total so far.” we have not quite met our goal yet, so sales from the mitten pattern and kits would help out a lot.
the fat tire mittens are textured in the same patterns as the scarf and knit up in a jif in worsted weight yarn (or any yarn that knits to the right gauge). we all just love them—so cozy and warm, perfect for the freezing weather that’s about to descend on us.
here we show the mittens in size medium, on the right in our cream ghillie sport DK and at left in our red festivus worsted (now sold out for the year), sorry.
HOWEVER . . .
david and anastasia got it listed in our online shop right away so it would be available for this pattern release.
erica B has created a fat tire kit option with yarn and pattern—click here to purchase.
many of the snow tire scarf kit options include enough yarn for an additional pair of mittens as well.
i think these would make an excellent valentine for someone special, don’t you? maybe the mitts for someone you like and the whole set for someone you REALLY like, haha.
i’ll let you decide.
i hope you have a VERY happy, happy new year’s celebration. we’ll be cooking and ringing in the new year with friends; i am very much looking forward to it.
tomorrow i have a special post to bring you from our scholarship recipient brandy, who sent me a beautiful note and some additional photos from her life at school.
and i’ll be hoping that the morning of january 1st brings the good news that our scholarship goal will be met—please let’s move it forward with one last great push.
thank you all so much for another incredible year!
