Ok let me tell you the story of these mittens. The story of these mittens is that three years ago, when I was still in Paris, I managed to make one mitten before it got too hot for them to be useful. “I’m not spending my summer making a mitten,” I said to myself. “I’ll put it in this drawer until it gets cooler and I can start the second one.” And so I did, I put it in my chest of drawers, where it was immediately devoured by carpet beetles, along with all the remaining yarn I had to finish the other one. And I was mad.
Now, finally, years later, they are done. Two whole mittens. May the yarn gods forever protect them from the forces of evil.
I set a challenge for myself, to get a Baozi Baby knitting pattern online to sell the 1st and 15th of every month until I move to somewhere in Asia. My first pattern of this challenge, the bear, will be uploaded on my website in less than 10 days. And because I had been waiting soo long to knit a reindeer with this coloring I had to show you all early, the pattern that will be uploaded on the 1st of November is the Baozi Baby Reindeer! Just in time for the winter season. After the reindeer all the animals were chosen at random (I wrote the names on slips and had my gran pick them out of a hat) because I was so indecisive I barely finished the Octopetite pattern.
