The mitts are cute, but my fingers get cold too! When do people wear them?

They look so warm and cosy! I've been thinking about making some of these for myself, as my hands get quite cold even indoors. I'll be checking out the pattern directly.

Staci, these are lovely gifts. And I liek the way you've tied them with a candy cane

Love the mitts. Wish I could make something like that. Iam only gifted to cross-stitch and that is NOT a bad thing. Everyone seems to be in the Christmas spirit already! I love It. :)

Vonna said...

How very nice Staci :o)
I make bags of Caramel Corn for all of our teachers, so I know the work that goes into homemade gifts, but every year the teachers know that I do this and they look forward to it :) That's what counts!

The elf certainly is busy and making such beautiful gifts! I love the presentation of the mitts. You are really making me wish I could knit. Can't wait to see what's next!

Melissa said...

Wow, they're wonderful. You will make lots of people happy with these lovely hand-made gifts. Do you have a 'Super Elf' T-shirt? ;-)

What great gifts! You go girl:)

Lucky teachers! I love the way you have finished the mittens off with a ribbon and a candy cane. Very sweet.

Lovely gifts for teachers!

Jean said...

Wow- how do you do it?? You are like the elf from Rumplestiltskin weaving straw into gold!!! The mitts are great. I had the same question as Annie - when do people wear these? I have thought about it for some time and it's so cold here already, I can't imagine not covering my fingers.
What else is going on in the shop??

jurga said...

wow, amazing gifts - perfect for winter time! And they look so nice all together :)

Carol R said...

Great mittens - we could even wear those to stitch!

Tell me Mrs Elf - are you wearing your elf suit with its jingle bells??

Teri said...

Oh Staci, what wonderful gifts! I love fingerless gloves, but I think these fingerless mittens will be even more functional! Thanks for the link to the pattern and a "new" site that I'll visit again.

Oh what lucky teachers! Love how you added the candy sticks to make them festive. So pretty.

Smiles,
Lea

Those are some lucky teachers to receive the mitts. Nice way you packaged them. You are so creative and get so much done. I am jealous.
