The fictional Columbia Inn in Pine Tree, Vermont plays host to one of my favorite holiday movies: White Christmas.
I can just picture the busybody housekeeper, Emma, knitting away at these mittens during a quiet moment, perhaps a holiday gift for Betty or Judy.
The Columbia Inn mittens feature a picot edge and decorative snowflake cuff, an excellent opportunity to get your feet wet with a little colorwork. The body of the mitten is worked in plain stockinette, so they knit up quickly, perfect for holiday knitting, or to squeeze into your busy knitting schedule as a gift for yourself.

I taught myself to knit with a copy of Knitting for Dummies 5 years ago, and haven't looked back since. I've expanded into designing knitwear and writing knitting patterns, and occasionally dabble in dyeing and spinning as well.
