So last October I picked up my hook.
Have not picked it up since then.
I decided to hook a few mittens
which were for sale at the gift shop for Christmas.
I only hooked 6 and each was a different
color combination of
gray, olive tan and blue.
I dont remember which ones sold,
but I do know Sandy purchased my favorite.
I wanted to use non traditional colors,
so that if someone wanted to keep
it up, you could do so for the Winter
and not just Christmas.
They are backed with wool,
so you could add white tallow berries
or just greens inside and hang from a cabinet door.
Or even from a door knob.
Each of them had a wool piece stitched
at the top for hanging.
Unfortunately I forgot to take pics
of all of them completed,
but you get the gist of what they looked like.
Another update on my daughter's progress.
Sunday we talked and it was the first time
she was able to sit and cross her legs
since the first surgery back in Nov.
She does not want to jinx herself,
but feels she is getting better.
I continue to pray that another infection
does not creep in as her surgeon
said there is still a 20% chance it could
Thank you again for keeping her in
your thoughts and prayers.
You are all the
Snow Mitten Blessings To All!
Those are great and making them with other colors leaves the decorating up till .... April in WI....ahahahaReplyDelete
LOL on having Winter in April. JaniceDelete
great idea for the mittens. So glad to hear your daughter is still doing wellReplyDelete
Thanks Cathy on both comments! JaniceDelete
Love your mittens. I have a mitten with a heart in the middle instead of stripes and it is filled with greens and faux berries. Could also be left on my door thru February for Valentine's day.ReplyDelete
Great news about your daughter and hope the recovery continues.
Love the idea of adding the greens and berries. Agree on leaving it up for Valentine's. I should have made one for myself. Oh well. Maybe next year. JaniceDelete
Love those mittens you silly kitten! I want to wear them! We need a couple of pairs to get through this last freezing and snowy week of January!ReplyDelete
Well I dont think you would be able to wear my hooked ones. LOL We have had a cold spell here too. UGH...but getting closer to Spring. JaniceDelete
The snow mittens are a great idea to hang on the door. You're very creative Janice.ReplyDelete
Pussy willows would also look nice in them for early spring.
I'm glad that your daughter is now able to sit. Praying that she will continue to get better. What doesn't kill us makes us stronger as the saying goes. I found that to be true.
Take care, stay well and safe.
Pussy willows is an awesome idea for the mittens. I need to make one for myself for sure now. That saying is so true. JaniceDelete
Love your mittensReplyDelete
Thanks a bunch! JaniceDelete
Wonderful idea to use neutralish wintery colors for those mittens. That's the problem with my decorating, rather lack of, for winter - everything I have seems to scream Christmas. I hope all the crap is behind in your daughter's recovery.ReplyDelete
Thanks Gail! Am hoping for a full recovery now for my daughter. I do like to just keep up my greens and some white lights in the Winter. Makes the nights more cozier and warm. JaniceDelete
Love the mittens!ReplyDelete
Continued prayers for your daughter!!!
Thanks Lauren. Much appreciated! JaniceDelete
Love your mittens they are so cute. I still have them out because they aren't Christmas specific and I don't want to put them away. Wish I would have bought more. Hopefully you will have them again. Glad your daughter is on the mend,prayers she continues. Winter blessings to you and BobReplyDelete
That was why I chose those colors so they could be kept out for the long Winter nights. I do have a few left and will bring them back out next Christmas. Thanks for your prayers for my daughter and Winter Blessings to you too! JaniceDelete
Oh your Mittens are Great !!! I hooked a mitten last year after seeing what Saundra had done ....it's one of my favorite hooked pieces !!!ReplyDelete
So happy your daughter is feeling better !!!!
Yes I do remember Saundra's mitten from last year. Its what made me decide to make these. JaniceDelete
What sweet mittens!!! Love the color palette - There is a line of fabrics with those colors and I have been very tempted to try that color scheme in one of the bedrooms at the lake....but think I have done enough "damage" financially up there for quite a while. (Eeek!) I also like that you have made them so that you can tuck things into them....I made one years and years (and YEARS!) ago, but simply backed it so it doesn't open. And I think mine was much smaller.... Glad to read the good news about your daughter.... ~Robin~ (PS...forgot to mention last time that I like your new header photo montage!)ReplyDelete
Thanks Robin for all of your sweet comments. I have had a hard time changing my header photo in a timely manner, so this way it now covers most of the seasons. JaniceDelete
Hi Janice, I continue to keep your daughter in my prayers and I'm so happy to hear she continues to make progress. Your mittens are so sweet and I love the colors. I really like the idea of using them for winter decor. They are a cozy touch in the colder months. JaneReplyDelete
Thanks Jane! The more I think about them now, I should have kept one for myself. Oh well. Will need to make one next year for me. JaniceDelete
Thank you for the update, continued prayers.ReplyDelete
I love the mittens. They are fun colors.
Thanks Carla. I did have fun making those mittens. JaniceDelete
Now I could use a pair of warm mittens like those...it's 1 degree outside this morning, brrr! Such pretty colors; perfect for winter/after Christmas. So glad to hear your daughter is feeling stronger. MaryReplyDelete
UGH 1 degree and I though 10 was cold. BRRR JaniceReplyDelete
I love the mittens, but the news that your daughter is better is the best of all!ReplyDelete
Thanks Holly! I was getting worried about you since you had not been blogging for a bit. So glad you are alright and healthy again. JaniceReplyDelete
Janice, those are really great. I love the colors and just the idea of hooked mittens. So glad to hear your daughter is still improving and prayers that she keeps it up. It is so hard to see them be unwell. In that respect they never grow up, they are still just our little kids..Happy Weekend..xxoJudyReplyDelete
That is so the truth when it comes to our kids. Thanks for liking my mittens. They were fun making them. JaniceReplyDelete
