Mario Bros. Mushroom Mitts and Stormy Clouds

Craftzine posted a great pattern for knitted Super Mario Bros. Mushroom Mitts. I was checking out the designer's site and noticed she had a few more free knitting designs (click on the link on the left hand side that says Gratis monster), including a Stormy Cloud, a Skully Hat and Bubble Bobble Mitts.

The Needlework Show has started and will go on until September 29th. They have loads of fun things going on like a scavenger hunt and contests. Be sure to check out the home page because Dinky Dyes is giving away an entire line of their silk embroidery thread to one winner and Carousel Charts is providing a freebie chart that's perfect for Halloween.

Winter Twilight Mitts

Knitting Daily has a pretty pattern for fingerless mitts available for download. I love the purple, but I think they'd look good with an orange/red yarn, too.

I won an award!


Devil Bob didn't end up winning the Mochimochi Photo Contest, but I did receive a Super Commenter award from Patty. Woohoo! I'm giving it right back to Patty and to my friend Linda because they leave the most comments for me.

I also won a knitting pattern booklet from Berroco. What's amazing is that I actually have the yarn to knit two of the sweaters from this booklet and some of the needles. It's a stash miracle.
