Smitten


Been wondering what I've been knitting over the past few months? This might be my favorite Christmas surprise. :)

A few years ago, I was going through some old boxes in my parents shed and stumbled upon a funny looking mitten-type thing.  Mom said it was a mitten that you could hold hands in; someone had knit it for my parents as a wedding gift.  Brian and I got such a kick out of it. We called it "The Uni-glove" and wore it a few times on our winter walks in college.

After I learned to knit, I wanted to see if I could find a pattern for one. I started by knitting one for Brian for Christmas...then I brought it to work to show a friend and pretty soon I had lots of orders for Christmas presents! So, I've been knitting these "Smittens" all autumn long...

Behold, the Smitten:

  7. Personalized gifts
    When I shop for gifts I traditionally look for unique on of a kind gifts and personalized gifts, as I've said many times before I think they make gift giving way more fun and personalized gifts.
