Hot Mitts - Warm Hands 
Poinsettia Rose Mittens"Poinsettia Mittens" Got chilly fingers  and a warm heart? Try your hand at knitting some Fair Isle mittens this season. Our fabulous felted mittens have been featured in KnitSimple (Holiday '07) and Knit and Style (December '07), with both magazines giving them rave reviews. All our mittens are made with Cascade 220, everyone's favorite felting yarn.
The Poinsettia Mittens, shown here in the Rose colorway, have instructions for both child and adult sizing, with final adjustments to fit being taken care of in the felting process. These mittens are also available in kit form in an Aqua colorway, and as always, the pattern is available for purchase online via download or USPS delivery.

Make the mittens for yourself, then another pair for a loved one, or give the kit to your best knitting friend - with these cute toasty mittens, you can't go wrong!
new togs for totsMore Togs for Tots ~ AKA "Name that Pattern!"
As newsletter subscribers you get a sneak peek at what's to come.
Here are two new designs that we expect to release within the next couple of weeks. They are part of our growing Togs for Tots line of apparel for kids aged 2-8 years.
The first is an offshoot from our #2 bestselling hat. It's a great bottom-up raglan sweater. I've made it here in cotton for easy care, comfort and great color saturation. The second one (inset above) is inspired by our #3 hat. It's a fun Fair Isle design with a unique braided trim at the hem, collar and cuffs.
Can you name the Knitwhits hats that inspired these Togs for Tots? The first five entries to correctly name the top 3 selling hats (yep, you'll need to figure out the #1 hat too..) will each win a copy of these two new Togs for Tots patterns.
