Cast On, Cast Off

A couple of days ago, I dropped by Cast On, Cast Off to get some yarn. They don't have a web site but they are on Face Book for those of you interested in seeing their yarns. Don't you just love the name of the shop?!!

Go HERE & HERE  for two previous posts to see some photos of the shop.

Here's what I purchased:

My sister knits lovely socks but I'm going to try my hand at mittens. I've never made mitts before but I've knit many other things so this shouldn't be a problem. Guess who gets the first pair? Someone who loves pink and purple and is 6 years old. This colour will match her purple and lime green winter jacket.

Wish me luck!

The pattern I'm using is a free one: The World's Simplest Mittens. Lots of free patterns there too.



  1. I've made mittens before and they aren't hard (if they were, I wouldn't be doing them!). I've saved this pattern for making for our grandsons for this winter - it looks to be an easy one.

  2. Love the yarn. Good luck on the mittens.
