On The Needles Fri Jan 18,2013

I was feeling very anxious one evening this week and my son said "You need to knit."  Smart guy.  So I had bought a skein of Ultra Alpaca so I could try knitting with it.  I cast on a pair of mitts using a pattern called Dixie Rose Mitts by designer Julie Matthews.

I think it is a cute pattern, and there are supposed to be buttons on the cuff- I have to hunt through my button stash and find something awesome!

Head over to Patchwork Times and see what else is on the needles!

I love how knitting can comfort us. I'm looking forward to seeing the mitts complete with buttons.

It is so great how knitting can make us feel so comfortable. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished mitts complete with buttons.
