I worked up a cute pair of mittens to go with all the other Adiri patterns, and since Adiri is a lace pattern, there is a pattern for an "undermitten" as well. The undermitten is worked separately, so the pattern ended up being a two for one. You can make fancy Adiri Mittens, plain undermittens, or both to really warm up your hands in winter. The other news is that I have finally put together a real website. Don't worry - I plan to keep the blog! But for all other things yarn-y and pattern-y, you can check out the site. It has links to all my Mind of Winter and Twist patterns in pdf, and links to the patterns that you can purchase in printed form as well. I also plan to feature the independent yarn companies that support me, and take you a little bit behind the scenes of what they do, as well as discuss the specific yarns I've chosen for a pattern, and what I like about them. It will take time, so if you are interested, stop in every once in a while to see it all grow.
I'm also running a contest. If you head over to the new site and subscribe to receive e-mail updates on pattern releases before the end of your day on February 1, you'll be entered to win an Adiri Mitten pattern. I hope you'll all stop by!
