The Smittens Are Back!! Just In Time For The Holidays!!


I’ve been smitten with sweater mittens ever since I taught my first class on how to make them. They are perfect for holiday gifts and the possibilities are endless.

I like to call them “Smittens”.

Hehe! Get it?…..sweater…..mittens…..SMITTENS!!! Ha!

Sometimes I just crack myself up.

Recently, for some reason, my thrift store sweater collection wanted to see the light of day. I really don’t blame them. They were tired of sitting on the shelf doing nothing. They wanted to get out and go places again. Be loved again. Have some fun again. I finally succumbed to their wishes and when I told them they were going to become Smittens, I immediately heard the soft muffled sound of a collective sweater cheer. You know, you really haven’t lived until you’ve experienced an excited sweater. πŸ™‚

Needless to say, my OCD kicked in and pretty soon I had more Smittens than I knew what to do with.


Sooooooooo……back by popular demand, and just in time for your holiday shopping, I’ve opened up a new etsy store and the Smittens have taken over. Β 

I mean really, who wouldn’t want a pair of Smittens?

So, if you’d like to support my OCD (obsessive crafting disorder), please consider Β someΒ handmade SmittensΒ from my etsy store for a few of your holiday gifts this year.

If you purchase a pair of Smittens before Thanksgiving day, your name will be entered into a drawing for a free pair. Just sayin’!

Happy Holidays!!!

    I am been making these as well! They are great and an amazing way to upcycle clothing! Your name “smittens” is much better then my boring “sweater mitts”. Good luck with your etsy store πŸ™‚

    Ah, they look so cozy! If only you shipped to Canada! I definitely could use those around here this time of year; the temperature today was around -10 degrees celsius! (I think that’s around 14 degrees fahrenheit). Looks like Autumn ran off in a hurry!
    Any chance we could get a tutorial on these lovely Smittens so I can attempt to make my own? ; )
    Loving your recent posts, by the way! You’ve given me all kinds of great ideas for homemade Christmas gifts : )

    “The Smittens Are Back!” is such a great title! I’m imagining a children’s movie … in case you’re looking to branch out even more than you already have πŸ™‚

    Your smittens are full of beautiful colours and very classy looking. Nice!

    Smitten with those Smittens!! Going to give it a try as soon as I make my frequent sojourn to the thrift store to scout out potential Smitten sweaters. Thanks ever so for all these nifty ideas!
