Weekly Shop Update: Double Knit Mittens!

Sunday, August 5, 2012

Happy Sunday! (Sundays are my Fridays . . . yippee!) I woke up today to an outside temperature in the 50s. While that's not exactly autumn weather, it's a good reminder that it won't be sunshine and 80 degree days around these parts forever.

With a little nip in the air this morning, it seems like a great time to unveil my newest item in my Etsy shop: double knit mittens! 

Soft Pink Double Knit Handmade Mittens
These mittens are knit using two strands of yarn to create a dense fabric that blocks the winds and wicks away moisture to keep your fingers toasty warm. Over the years I've knit several pairs of double knit mittens for the men in my life and have gotten rave reviews about how warm and durable these lightweight mittens are. These "pretty in pink" double knit mittens are sophisticated enough for the most fashion-forward gal, but practical enough for the woodsiest of women. Over the next few months, I'll be adding several styles of these mittens to the shop, including several men's styles. (Is it just me, or is it close to impossible to find products for men on Etsy,?)

If you swing by my shop, you'll notice that I've also added some new coffee cozies. While you're at the shop, consider making it an Etsy "favorite" so you can easily locate the shop in the future.


To help promote the new shop, as well as this here blog, I'm entering the world of blog sponsorships. Don't worry, the content of Of Woods and Words will remain largely the same (just my ramblings and blathering about the world around me) but there will be an increased focus on the handmade lifestyle.

If you're interested in sponsoring Of Woods and Words to promote your blog, business, or website, just click on the "Sponsor Me" link beneath my header for more information.You'll find the ad spots very reasonable priced (aka . . .a steal!). To launch the new program, I'm open to ad swaps; email me for more details about arranging a swap.

Thanks so much for all of your support. Have a beautiful day!
