Squeeeeee! I'm in knitty!

Ardea twined mitts
Originally uploaded by spinnity
Oh knitters, I'm wagging my tail like crazy today. My first published pattern appears in the Winter 2008 Issue of knitty: Larus and Ardea fingerless mitts in twined knitting.

This turns out to be another thing I'm grateful to the Knitspiration knitting guild for... if I hadn't taught the lesson twined knitting this summer, I wouldn't have developed this original pattern and Janice wouldn't have nudged me to submit it to knitty.

So thanks, guild members, thanks Janice. Thanks, of course, to Bill who shot all the photos. And thanks to knitty for publishing it! Working with the technical editor to get the pattern ship-shape was really helpful. I can't wait to see if anyone knits these and whether it's a challenge to learn twined knitting from the online resources available.

If you'd like to see all the photos of the mitts in one place, I've posted a photo set at Flickr

Congratulations!! The pattern looks great--I'm going to need to add it to my queue. I've got some Z-plied hand spun ready to go. Hopefully it's spun evenly enough to show the patterning.

I was so thrilled to find your pattern on Knitty.
A few years ago, I came across your picture of the brown half-mitts you had made for your husband from the 'Twined Knitting' book. I got the book from the library and made myself a pair. I love them! They are so warm!
Now I can use your wonderful pattern to make more!
Thank you very, very much!

Great to see a Tvåändsstickning pattern in English! I've been thinking about translating a pattern from Swedish but I've been too lazy... :)
