1.

i wouldn't be at the second annual unwind anniversary/ravelry party, appreciating super soft, hand-painted merino with a hundred other fellow knitters.

i wouldn't happen upon a pair of mittens knit from my pattern in a random (and beautiful) yarn store in a random eastern seaside town.

subliminalrabbit wouldn't be in vogue knitting.

this winter has been nothing short of astonishing and i'm eternally grateful to jess & casey for the magnificent online tool/database/community that is ravelry - without which, i have no doubt, there would be nowhere near 3,000 pairs of bella's mittens out in the world. so here's my thank you to them, and to all of you who found me through them. happy knitting!

At first I thought this was going to be one of those Hi - I'm an alcoholic posts - LOL Glad to know it was just a friendly knit get together - addicts of another kind ;)

I am sooooo thrilled for you! That is amazing and so well deserved. You'll have to have a give away for the 100,000th Bella mitten posted on Ravelry - or something - because that's where it's headed!

Yay- that's a great mention!!

I have been wearing my Bella's Mittens almost constantly when I've been outside this week- love them!

Yay for you! Iʻve enjoyed your blog and have made a few Bellaʻs Mittens as well and the Maggie arm warmers. Thank you for sharing your talent and fun!

I just found you because of Bella's mittens. And I'm looking forward to getting started on them, hopefully I will get them done before winter go's away!!!

Same as you Julie, found the mittens (for my hyper super mega fan daughter of Twighlight) and found subliminalrabbit at the same time. Great blog!
PS. Thank you because of the Bella's mittens, I'll become mom of the year at my daughter's school. I guess they won't be the only ones I'll be knitting. I think her friends will want a pair too! Happy knitting everybody...
