    I was agog over the mittens when I saw them in this issue. The color combinations are really wonderful. Congratulations.

    Mary Ann, Thank You for such a beautiful, thoughtful and well written pattern. I’m nearly finished with the cuff and I can’t believe I’m the first to list them as a project on Ravelry! I’m really in love with their simplicity but it’s so apparent the thought involved in the design. And I really love that the inspiration was pre-war tile work. I LOVE visiting old buildings with these tiles and patterns and always think of how many lives have passed through there and how many people don’t notice. Thank You! Can’t wait to show a picture but I have to be careful – they’re for a Ravelry Secret Pal gift! 🙂
