New KNIT pattern!

April 7, 2008

Here are my Too Big Computer Mitts (they aren’t snug, but they work great!).

I hope you like them.  If you would be interested in test knitting a needle knit version, please let me know via comments or email to notensionknits AT gmail.  I don’t needle knit, but I would like to make my knit patterns available to all knitters, since anything you can loom knit can also be needle knit.

All the best! Happy crafting!

In Tunisian Crochet

Because this pattern is so quick and easy, I had a new friend test crochet it; I was convinced it was too good to be true! Thanks to Silver on Ravelry for testing the pattern. She had never done this style of crochet before and made two of them before I could even blink! This is going on my easy gift list. I chose Tunisian (a.k.a. afghan) crochet because of its dense fabric; it’s smooth on the inside (the front of the fabric) but more textured on the outside.

The pattern is now available here and on Ravelry (as a PDF)!
