Day 2 of “Texting Mitts” Tour

Kathryn Vercillo of the wonderful Crochet Consupiscence blog is our host today.

I read her blog regularly because she always has sometime inspiring or thought-provoking on there.  Just be warned, her site is a bit addictive and you can easily find yourself spending a few hours reading and exploring links.

She also recently published a wonderful book, “Crochet Saved My Life”.  If you have felt like crochet was a big part of how you maintained your sanity you aren’t alone. You can find out more about this book on Kathryn’s website.

I was really excited when she agreed to review my booklet and do a give-away drawing for a copy of the booklet as well.

One of my goals this week for the blog tour is to show you the mitts from my booklet worked in different yarns from those pictured.

In the photo above I am wearing my Stagger Cross Stitch Mitts worked in Aslan Trends Natural Luxury Yarns “Santa Fe”.  This is a lovely 85% merino wool and 15% polyamide sock yarn that had been waiting in my stash for just the right project.  I made the Large size mitts for this pair, as I wanted to wear them over my glove liners. I also worked a couple extra rounds to cover more of my fingers.

These are the perfect extra layer over my liners for those nippy mornings when I drive the boys to school.
