Octopus Mittens

 Day 2 ::  2010 Craft Books

60 Quick Knits: 20 Hats*20 Scarves*20 Mittens in Cascade 220

the title says it all: 20 knitting patterns for hats, 20 knitting patterns for scarves, and 20 knitting patterns for mittens
 Cascade 220 is currently the most popular yarn on Ravelry, it's affordable & easy to find, so what a great idea to have a craft book full of knitting patterns specially for this yarn.

 check out the 60 different patterns, join the 60 Quick Knits Ravelry group
when it comes to deciding what you're going to craft, do your children sometimes inspire you?  my second son's favorite animal is the octopus, so when i came across this knitting pattern for octopus mittens, i had to knit some for him.  and since his favorite colors are yellow & red, there was no hesitation as to what color Cascade 220 yarn would be used.

all notes on these octopus mittens found here
we for sure need to wear mittens outside today (very cold brrrr!)

see you tomorrow for day 3 !
