To keep you warm
I have named these mittens Ritva and Raimo, at least for the wip-phase. (But possibly forever.) Reason: there are two variations of stripes, two different types of thumb gussets, and you can knit the mittens either top down or bottom up. With all the variations -which you can combine how ever you like- they are like an old couple of whom you can’t really tell anymore which one is which. If they were humans they would probably wear matching jogging pants on their evening walk.

I put some warm wool things into the shop, because winter is just around the corner.

Yay! This was a long project started already last winter, but Piilo garter stitch basket is finally out!

The sample is made with super bulky ribbon yarn, but my pattern testers used everything from denim to t-shirt yarn to twine. The basket gets its round shape from YO short rows, and buttons up with two large buttons.

You can find this on both Etsy and Ravelry.
