Finished Project: York Mittens

Finished the York mittens I posted on Wednesday, just in time for the end of the year. I’m seeing their recipient tomorrow, but I snapped a few photos before I wrap them up to give.

I wanted to get nice pictures since I’m not keeping these. A few quick snaps with my phone was not good enough! So the mittens had a little photoshoot (on the living room floor). I tried to convince my photographer that knitted things look really nice when they’re stacked — I don’t know if I convinced him, but I’m convinced.

Technical specs:

These will probably be my last finish of the year, though I am hoping to complete the Colorwash quilt top by the end of the year, which I guess means in the next 24 hours. Anyone else working feverishly on end-of-the-year projects?

PDX-Stitch Etsy shop is now open

Good news, everyone, I’ve joined Etsy! Click here to browse the PDX-Stitch shop on Etsy. I will be putting some digital cross stitch patterns up, and they will stay available at my Craftsy store, too. More importantly, I’ll be offering completed stitched pieces like my Malcolm Tucker cross stitch, for those of you without the time or inclination to stitch yourself. I will also be offering sewing and needlecraft supplies.

Even better, now through August 31, 2015 you can get $5 off a $20 purchase with the coupon code GRANDOPENING!

And if any readers want to open an Etsy store, use this link and we’ll both get forty (40!) listings for free, which at 20¢ per listing is a pretty good deal.
