New knitted mitts pattern in the works

Greetings and a very happy holidays to all!

This past year has been one of change, challenges and uncertainties, for myself and I’m sure for many of you too. I regret that some projects I had meant to complete in 2021, thanks to the challenges both of COVID-19 restrictions and personal health issues, have had to be put on hold or indefinitely postponed. I’m sure many of you can identify with this situation.

I am looking forward to 2022 with a positive feeling of hope. I wanted to drop a line and reconnect to let you know there’s one project I’ve been able to push through the challenges of 2021… The Wheeler Mitts Knitting Pattern is in the works and I’m very happy to say it’s just about ready to launch. The pattern has been test-knit several times to make sure it’s as error free as possible before it is made available to other knitters.

A big thank you to knitting technical editor, Irene, and test stitcher, Patty, for all their help and input to help bring this pattern to completion!

Also, my blog is undergoing some redesign to better reflect the nature of Stitch Revival Studio (it’s had to go through some adaptive changes) and my focus for the new year. I thank you in advance for your patience as website pages and posts shift and maybe even go dormant going forward.

More news will follow soon about the knitting kit and new projects for 2022.

I have truly appreciated the support I have received both personally and for the work of Stitch Revival Studio.

Thank you! And happy stitching!
