leighsideknitsWith dreams of gingerbread (and chocolate and lemon curd and mince pies and sugar cookies and spiced wine and tourtière and turkey-cranberry sandwiches and and and 🐷🙊) and an upcoming MITTENKAL dancing through my head.... as there's a little more than two weeks left until I host a very informal artist-inspired mitten knitalong, I would like to share a few details for those of you wishing to participate: this KAL welcomes everyone; you can use a published pattern or make up your own and they can be as plain or fancy as you like- they just need to be inspired by an artist or art movement; the KAL will run the whole month of January, beginning January 1st; I will offer weekly prompts for photos and discussion BUT you only need to post ONE photo of your finished mittens by the end of the month to be eligible for the GIVEAWAY draw which includes this gorgeous and squishy skein of Gregoria Fibers yarn (✨thank you, Anna!✨); finally, as this KAL is meant to spark our creative spirits, the most important goal is to have fun! Also, as life gets busier and busier leading up to the holidays and I will likely be checking in here only sporadically, I would like to wish everyone a very happy holiday season and to say I am so looking forward to spending more time with you in 2017 ❤️ #leighsidemittsKAL2017 #ilovemittens #handmademittens #gregoriafibers
