mittens and gloves

I've been meaning to show this for quite some time.
Chances are you have probably already seen it out there. The book includes 40 of the best designs from Vogue Knitting magazine.
An entire chapter devoted to mittens, one to gloves, one to wrist warmers and a fun and funky section.
Super long, fair isle, motif's and cables.
I'm pretty sure you could find something for everyone on your gift list, including yourself. Time to get busy!

Tara over at Soho would like to give one (actually TWO!) to a couple of my readers. Leave a comment between now and Sunday the 21st at 12:00 EST and I will have the random generator choose two names.

By the way... the pattern links in the sidebar now work. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Also, I have added the yarn colors to my piece of pi and your piece of pi.

Have a great one!
