This is what development looks like.

Something about the sight of this pile of mittens amused me... I've seen photos on Ravelry of a knitter's entire year's production of socks, but usually those feature socks knit from many different patterns. So this stack of mittens all knit from the same pattern, in different sizes and cuff options, struck me as funny. These are all prototypes for an upcoming pattern, which should go into test knitting in the next couple of weeks. This pattern was originally developed for a class at Serial Knitters in Kirkland, WA, with the goal of teaching a variety of skills in one small project. Called "Rose Hill Mitts", they feature mock cables, and an option to knit a decorative buttoned cuff or a plainer version with no cuff, and are written in 3 sizes to suit a wide range of knitters and their friends. Stay tuned...
