Mittens for Snow Days in May (and Other Snowy Months)
Yesterday, it snowed here in Edmonton.
That's not really all that unusual; in fact, I tend to refer to it as our annual surprise snowstorm. Sometimes it happens in April, sometimes as late as the last weekend of May.
I was ready to dress the kids in snowsuits and mittens on their way to school yesterday and today because I don't put those away until June 1st. I wore my stranded mittens myself, and thought, hey, what better time to release the Floral Mittens pattern on Ravelry?
You may remember these mittens from December, when they were published in the highly popular and Nordic-themed-knitwear-filled edition of Knit Now Magazine, issue #42. They are now available for sale on Ravelry here or you could just head over to my pattern page at this link.
Today, the flowers are covered in ice, and though by the weekend it will be spring again, today I am wearing mittens.
