Do you love knitting mittens? Or are you interested in learning how? Knitting mittens is a little like knitting socks - with less worry about fit. Today we're super excited because it's launch month for the new season of Knitting Daily TV and we're celebrating with a free mitten pattern and special giveaway drawing for our readers and viewers. KnittingDaily.com is giving away three sets of finished mittens from the Smitten pattern collection, designed by Mags Kandis for Mission Falls, and one additional winner will receive the pattern booklet and 10 free skeins of 1824 Wool and 1824 Cotton yarn! You heard that right! Knitters in the blogosphere are familiar with yarn giveaways, but this time, we're giving away the finished mittens so you can enjoy and wear them right away (and have the time to knit a matching scarf before Fall)!
UPDATE August 5, 2010: We have our winners! Of the 125 comments, our random number generator selected Knitting Daily members Jean01, LisaR@39, Kelleigh, and Conniehen as our top four winners. Please join me in congratulating them. Ladies, check your Knitting Daily inboxes for instructions on sending me your mailing address. Thanks!
To be entered into our random giveaway, leave a comment on this blog with your favorite tip for knitting, wearing, or organizing your mittens. We'll randomly select four winners among the comments to receive one of these four fabulous giveaways. (Comments must be left by August 4th at noon EST to be entered in the random drawing.) What's more to love? It's yarn and mittens!
