When I began designing these mittens and hat last fall, I really was motivated by thankfulness. That I have little ones to hug and love, that they are healthy. That we have enough food to eat and a warm house when it gets cold. That I have good friends and a wonderful family.
Anyone who knows me well knows I like to complain. A lot. When I get overly anxious or down, I try to remember to be thankful for the good things I have. I am lucky in many ways, even when I'm feeling overwhelmed by life.
So I try to remember to give thanks for the simple and most important things I have: a home to live in, a family to share it with, and people in my life whom I love and who love me back.
I'd like to give away a copy of both the Give Thanks Mitten and Hat patterns. I will email the winner a pdf version of each pattern. To be entered, leave a comment about what you're thankful for. I'll pick a winner at random next Friday, October 7th.
