I’m so excited because my latest pattern, God’s Eye Mitts, was just released in the new special accessories issue of Knitscene Magazine. The design features a funky asymmetrical diamond color-work motif, a cute little button tab, and striped garter stitch edging.
I feel like I made these FOREVER ago. I sent them off to Knitscene way back in December. Now, in the heat of the summer, they seem a little funny. I know I’m really going to love these come fall, though. Last year, I wore my Canyon Mitts all through fall, my Juris Mitts on the coldest days of winter, and my Mrs. Myrtle Mitts through the spring. I still occasionally wear a pair of mitts in my freezing cold office!
The diamond pattern reminded me of the god’s eyes I used to make when I was a kid. That craft project was probably my first introduction to yarn, so God’s Eye seemed an appropriate title, especially knowing the mythology around the symbol.
I’d love to hear what you all think about this new design. Drop me a note in the comments section below!
