As Stew (aka Suzanne) alluded to in her recent blogpost, the pattern for her Happy Out Mitts design from the These Islands book has been released for individual sale today. The pattern and book have both featured in the latest episode 7 of Blásta podcast. There is a special introductory price of approx £2.50 or €3.50. This includes the tax for UK/EIRE but might vary if you’re outside that region. It’s available for download on Ravelry now!
Here on the FibreFriends blog we’re having a giveaway to celebrate – the prize is an electronic copy of the pattern. Simply leave a comment with your ravelry username to enter. Alternatively comment with your email, so we can send the prize on. The winner will be drawn next Friday on my lunch break so be sure to enter before 1pm Dublin time!
I’ve been so excited about the release of Stew’s pattern that I decided we should have a knit a long or KAL. Our lovely friends at Blásta Podcast have agreed to host the KAL over on their Ravelry group. Please come over and join in the fun!
The official start date for the KAL is Saturday 12th September, but feel free to cast on before that if you’re itching to go. We know that some people will be starting the Carol Feller Mithral KAL on Oct 1st, but there’s plenty of time to sneak in a pair of mitts before then.
The pattern is a pretty quick knit and would make a great Christmas present. The official end date is December 1st so that they won’t be a last-minute gift. Or so they won’t interfere with gift knitting if they’re a treat for you! Feel free to make as many pairs as you like in that time! Anybody who finishes a pair and posts a finished picture by December 1st will be in the draw for a prize.
