These mitts were inspired by a vintage pair of "shortie" white gloves I wore to my senior prom! This pattern is a great introduction to cabling - there's only the one and it's easy. Also, you'll see how easy it is to add a feminine ruffled edge. The mitts are knit flat, starting at the ruffled cuff with a single cable twist, then sewn up the side leaving a thumbhole with optional crochet edging. There are separate directions for left and right mitts. My patterns are written in a non-traditional way to be very beginner-friendly. I use few, if any, abbreviations and give instructions in a row-by-row format in easy-to-read large type with a color picture of the finished project. Kits are available for this project - just add needles!

I've always made things as long as I can remember. Both my Mom and Dad were"makers", so it just was what you did! The handcrafted item was always respected and expected in my family. Mom taught me how to knit, which was a challenge, as she was left-handed and I'm right-handed! Knitting is the one art and craft that I always return to through the years. My other favorites are marbling, bookbinding, calligraphy and beading. It's especially fun to try and combine all of my favorites into one design! I can add sewing to the favorites list again after taking the "Couture Dress" class on Craftsy - I hadn't sewn for myself in a long time because fitting and the way patterns are done frustrated me to no end - the class gave me a whole new way to approach sewing and I'm enjoying it again.
