Yarn Along -- Cupcake Mittens

Some of you might remember these Cupcake Mittens by Spillyjane.  This February it’ll have been two years since I started them.  I knew when I cast them on that they wouldn’t be done in time to wear that winter, but was sure I could have them done by the following winter.  But that winter came and went, and I was newly pregnant and had no interest in making mittens for myself.

Having already knitted a six-month-supply of baby clothes, this year I have no excuses.  I’m still not very interested in them, but it’s something to do during my measly half hour to myself at night.  

I’m more interested in the immediate gratification that comes with sewing projects, but 10:30 at night is not a great time to break out the sewing machine unless you really enjoy using a seam ripper.

Speaking of sewing, yesterday I announced the relaunch of my Etsy shop.  I now sell baby shoes made from woven wrap scraps, like Girasols.  My shop is now called Sew Sweet Studio and is open for business.  Please check it out!  Thanks, friends.


  1. The design of those mittens looks very intricate and time consuming! No wonder you put them aside.

  2. They look good enough to eat (smile).

  3. Congratulations on reopening your Etsy shop!...Im just learning how to knit properly only I do continental knitting which seems easier to me. Im just beginning a small afghan lap blanket for a friend, hoping it turns out well.. The mittens really are cute.

  4. Wow! That is got to be the cutest pair of mittens! What work!
