Happily Ever After

Once upon a time. . .

Okay.  I'm not so much a fan of the fairytale.  (And this song/video is just wonderful!  Lots of fun.)

I think it's the whole . . . princess . . . thing.  I never really bought into the Prince-Charming-will-arrive-and-sweep-you-away part.  I always saw the weak spots in the story lines.

So just TELL him you're being abused at home and maybe he'll help you.

Figure out how to climb down your own hair and escape!

Resist the urge to spin!!!!

That said, I LOVE the fairytale theme of Kim's yarn club this year!  Each of the yarns have been just magical, and the pattern designs are, well . . . charming.

These mitts, knit from Kim's Frolic yarn, using Alicia Plummer's Featherdown pattern* (inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen tale of The Ugly Duckling), are perfect in every way!

There's definitely a happy ending to this story!  Me and my mitts will live . . . happily ever after!

That is a gorgeous pattern and now I'll wait impatiently until July!

I love everything about those mitts - the photo styling is especially appropriate, too. and happy endings are my favorite!

Patty

Nice! I loved the look of the pattern too. I used my yarn on a hat though and was pleased with the results. It's just so nice.

Jo

Those are great looking mitts. I have avoided them because my fingertips get so cold--when skiing Imalways had to wear mittens!

Vicki

A friend just started knitting this project at Knit Night last night... at first she wasn't so sure, but we were all smitten by the end of the night. Lovely!!

Marilyn

Love the mitts! They really do look like feathers. :)
