It’s my birthday this week (Thursday) and I thought it would be nice to celebrate by offering a giveaway to my fabulous readers. Since it’s still going to be pretty cold for the Northern hemi for a little while, I thought some nice warm mittens and gloves would be perfect (and winter will be in the Southern hemi before you know it).
This giveaway is open to everyone, everywhere!
The gloves are knitted alpaca gloves from Village Shoes (they aren’t affiliated with this contest, but they are awesome and you should still check them out.) I won these gloves in a contest, but I’m allergic to alpaca, so I want to pass them on to someone who can give them the love they deserve. They really are gorgeous, and very soft and warm.
I handknit the mittens myself, using Elizabeth Zimmermann’s mitered mittens pattern. The yarn is a soy/wool blend, and it is very soft and warm.
The winner will receive both pairs!
