So today I am priviledged to be reviewing a new book for Leisure Arts called Texting Mitts, designed by fellow designer Andee Graves.
This book has a wide range of designs (eight in all) each with different patterns and skill levels. So there is something for everyone!
I especially love the fact that Andee used #1 Sock Yarn, which I think makes the mitts more soft and stretchy than they would have been in another type of yarn. Sock yarn come in such beautiful pallettes and Andee makes use of some of the best. Due to a variety of patterns, these mitts are fun to do and because they all are crocheted with an E or F hook, they will work up fairly quickly as well!
Another added feature to this great book are Bonus Online Tutorials. Wherever you see a camera icon in the instructions, there is a video online tutorial to accompany the instructions! That is a wonderful feature for beginners or those who are just not quite sure of a particular stitch pattern or technique!
I love the fact that several of the designs are sized for Small, Medium and Large and that all the yarns used are readily available to everyone. This book has beautiful color photos, which show up the different stitch patterns very well. It is sure to be another winner for Leisure Arts and Andee!
Here are four of my favorites:
|Chunky V's Lace Mitts|
|Diamond Back Mitts|
|Cabled Shell Mitt|
Additional information and photos for each design in Texting Mitts can be seen at Ravelry HERE.
