And the winners of a free copy of the Bella’s Mittens pattern are…..

I’ve already emailed you a copy of the pattern if you won, so please let me know if you don’t find it in your in-box.

I also wanted to thank everyone for their kind comments about the mittens! I’ve never designed anything before, and I’m sure I’ve made mistakes, but its really nice to hear how much you enjoy the pattern.

Also, as a general announcement, I have received many many many requests to knit a pair of these mittens and sell them. I’m a mother of two, and I work full-time. My youngest just turned 5 months old and is teething, so I’m lucky if I get a chance to eat dinner when I get home much less knit as much as I would like to. If you really really would like to commission a pair of mittens, I am charging $66 a pair.

$11 Yarn
$5 Shipping
$50 Knitting Fee
—————–
$66 Total

It takes me about a week to finish them, and if you live outside of the U.S., I will add on additional shipping charges. Contact me via email if you would like to order a pair.

That being said, if you love the mittens I encourage you to try knitting. It’s really a lot of fun! Nothing gives you incentive to learn something new as much as a project you really want to have. It can also be a great opportunity to bond with your mom, grandma, or friend who knits as they show you the ropes. If nothing else, maybe you can convince them to knit you a pair if you ask  nicely. 🙂
