blogiversary grand finale

today we are going way back in the patternsphere – pre written pattern, to be exact.

desperately seeking…
a person with hand size that will fit into these mitts:
3 1/2 (8.9 cm) across
9 in. (22.9 cm) tall
2 1/2 in. (6.4 cm) thumb
4 3/4 in. (12.1 cm) thumb to tip

alternately, your hand must be smaller than mine which are women’s large – measuring 7.5 in. around and 5 in. from where my thumb starts to the top of my longest finger.

i tried. i wore them to work twice when it was very cold outside. they work well and they are super fuzzy (mohair and angora – yum!). i could put them in the gift pile, but frankly, they need to be worn! that’s what i get for just wanting to do a pattern and not making them for myself – OF COURSE i would want to wear them later. silly. what better way to let them go than let them warm another knitter who will appreciate and love them?

the color in this picture is closest to true- the hand dyed is pretty sassy. click on the word ‘mitts’ above to see other pics and other specs.

thanks for taking part in my blogiversary!

  1. I’ll wear them even if they ARE too small!!! I LOVE them!! And really, handknits are so much better when you don’t have to actually knit them yourself. :)

  2. I’d love these! I also have small hands. I do live in the UK though – so I hope that doesn’t disqualify me! I could always have you ship them to my family in the US and they could bring them over. :-)

  3. Beautiful!!!! They would be nice and warm for our
    trip to Mt. Hood next month. Enjoy your blog and your
    projects. I have made several of your hats for a local hospital to give to those patients who need them. Thanks for the patterns.

  4. OMG, I love those! I’ve been looking for a pattern for making a pair of mitts just like them too. I have small hands and think those would fit me perfect. I hope *crossing fingers* that I win those!!

    If I don’t win, maybe you could point me in the direction of the pattern for them :D

  5. Those mittens are beautiful!!! Please put my name in the drawing, I have tiny hands and I need lots of mittens because I live in Alaska!
    Happy Blogoversary too!

  6. OHHHHH.bEAUTIFUL. I have small enough hands for something as wonderful as hand-made gorgeous mitts! Throw me in too…if you will.

  7. the sabbath mitts… I don’t know if they would fit, my hands are likely a large too (couldn’t find a tape measure in this chaos I call home).. but the joy of having snug fitting sabbath mitts… it would surpass any fit issues.
    Thanks for the fun Cosy

  8. Wow. This feels like some kind of Nordic Cinderella moment. If we were all to line up and try them on, I suppose my fingers would be too long. But maybe, just maybe… The beasts of the field will give of their wool, and you will be my fairy godmother.

  9. These would keep my little hands warm during this cold Nova Scotia winter. I love everything you make and I envy your sense of color matching.

  10. Happy blogiversary! And anniversary, too! Hubby and I hit our 6-year mark in July…here’s to many more happy years for both of us!

    I’d love the mittens – I haven’t tried my hand (ha ha!) at mittens like this yet (do have Eunny’s Anemoi mitts on hold indefinitely while I figure out the chart). Love the color combination, and they’d fit me! Lovely!!!

  11. Oh…those are so beautiful! I think my hand would probably fit them…they might be a touch big.

    But they’re soooo pretty! Very nicely done (despite the fact that they don’t fit you. :) )

  12. I’d love to win this pair of gorgeous mittens! I feel your pain, I’ve knit mittens that turned out too small for me, too – gauge issues, grrrr – but at least I have grandchildren with even smaller hands than mine. Thank you for your generosity, and happy blogiversary!

  13. Hi Cosy,
    I’ve measured my hands, and they’d fit! I love the strawberry-rhubarb colour of the mittens, and would (like a three year old) spend a lot of time looking at them in wonderment…! Lynn
