The Knit Year in Review

Christmas mantle

Every year's end, I like to review what I've done and make plans for what I'll do in the coming months. As I looked over the things in my portfolio, I was disappointed that I had completed so few knits (and no crochet!!)- only 37 items! Many of these were original designs, and yet I haven't written up the patterns. I resolve to do better in 2008. I am also starting this year with a new knitting notebook - my red one is completely full!

Hi - I have just discovered your blog - I especially love what you are doing with vintage patterns! Would you knidly post the link for the Bracken Seattle Bus mitts pattern? I googled and search Ravelry to no avail - but I have a friend living in Seattle whose last name is Bracken - this could be the perfect gift! Thanks for your help. Kabira Kabira501 at yahoo dot com

Hi Kabira! Bracken Seattle Bus Mittens is the name I gave to my version of the mitts - because the yarn I used was a colour called "Bracken" hand-dyed by my local yarn store, and I made them for someone who lived in Seattle and used the bus, so they needed the hole for the fingers to get out their bus tokens. The pattern was originally from or - I'll look around and see if I can find the pattern....
