We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, then, is not an act
but a habit.
Last weekend, I led a one-day knitting workshop in the lovely hills of eastern Ohio. I designed mittens for the occasion. Eleven knitters worked from the eight-page pattern leaflet.
The child-size pair (left in photo) were knitted using Plymouth Encore worsted weight yarn and US #2 needles. The adult-size pair (right) were knitted using Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride yarn and US #3 needles.
This pattern was designed for beginning through intermediate level knitters. Knitters could choose to knit a ribbed cuff in one color and focus upon the basic texture-stitch techniques, or knit a two-color, stranded cuff with a one color, textured hand.
Connie King of the Pleasant Home Woolen Company organized the event with a delicious carry-in lunch. She also shared her home with me for the weekend—a delightful farm home with breath-taking views of the Ohio hill country. Thank you Connie.

Love the mittens! I tried to go to your “A time to knit” website to try and track down a copy of the 8-page booklet, but couldn’t get the website to load on my computer 😦
Anyway, the mittens are fantastic.
Who would ever think that mittens would have names? They are beautiful. You make knitting sound like so much fun,Katherine!
