the final countdown...

last night i came home to a very happy surprise in the mail!

a few months ago, kate at crafts beautiful magazine contacted me about bella's mittens; she had knit a pair and wanted to write a little article about them in the magazine. of course i said yes and then promptly forgot about it! what a wonderful surprise. it's a UK magazine and it's stuffed with tons of great craft ideas that i can't wait to try out!

since we're in the final countdown to new moon (do you have your new moon tickets yet?), i thought i'd share these bella's mittens-inspired patterns that have popped up around the internet! because really, what're mittens without a matching hat and scarf? so without further ado:

1. bella's hat by hollye knits. this was designed back in january and it's super-cute! i love the ginormity of the horseshoe cable.

2. bella's cable scarf by bamboo needles & ink stains. it looks so classic - this could go with anything!

3. and last but not least... a french translation of bella's mittens at knit spirit (there is also a swedish translation coming soon!). how cool is that?!

someone asked in the comments when exactly the photo contest closes - it's this friday at 11:59pm. i love seeing all your fun photos and can't wait to go through them meticulously this weekend! happy knitting everyone!

Congrats!!

No. Don't have my tickets. Will be out of town this weekend. (to be fair, I'm going to Black Bunny's, so I'm not even upset about it) but plan on going while all the other nuts are shopping Friday after Thanksgiving.

Enjoy it!!! Be sure and tell me how wonderful it is...
