Whit’s Knits: Seed Stitch Mittens and Hand Warmers – The Purl Bee – Knitting Crochet Sewing Embroidery Crafts Patterns and Ideas!


 

I know, you don’t want to hear it.  But, Old Man Winter will be here before you know it!  Best be prepared.  The Purl Bee, By Purl Soho is one of my favorite websites.  They often have picture tutorials.  This one shows how to make mittens!  It is so now on my list of things-to-do.  I am thinking a few of my girlfriend as well as my Mother and Daughter will think these are mighty fine gifts!

Many of us would agree, I think, that seed stitch is one of knitting’s most refined patterns, as elegant as Grace Kelly and as classic as argyle. But what may go a little under appreciated is the feel of seed stitch.

A firm seed stitch has a wonderfully satisfying texture, like warm pebbles on a garden path or like crisp kernels on a sweet cob of corn. In the dark, I’d take a swatch of seed stitch over stockinette any day! And so I thought, why not put the feeling of seed stitch literally at my fingertips?

Working the thumb hole even looks like something I could do.  😀

About gmaellenscraftycorner

I am a recently widowed, mother of three wonderful, grown children, G-Ma (Grandma) to seven beautiful grandchildren. I work full time at a nearby grocer as the Pricing Coordinator. In my spare time, I craft and blog. Crochet is my obsession, my compulsion. My best friend, my therapist. I also have learned I love to knit! Who knew??? I may never be a master knitter, but I am a happy knitter. :D Work, family, Women's Pool League, crafting and blogging. Pretty much takes up every waking minute of every day, but besides that I love movies and music (which I can enjoy while I am crafting!). And here I thought I didn't have a life! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog. I appreciate every click. :D My Etsy www.etsy.com/shop/gmaellen
