Happy Spring!

It's actually starting to look like Spring around here, or the last dregs of winter, anyway. To celebrate the new season, we have a brand spanking new pattern for you!

If you've been reading the blog over the last few weeks, you will have read about it already. Mr. Mitten came up with the name of Scraps Chaps, which is both silly and rhyming, so how could I resist? You can find the pattern on Lulu and Etsy. I tried adding it to my Ravelry store, but I'm having some problems, so it will have to wait until later today when my hubby can figure out what's wrong.

I find this pattern super fun myself, starting with digging through my stash to find odd balls of yarn, then matching them together, and next deciding which colours to use for which body part. Then you knit everything up, but you're still not sure how the finished toy will look, knit from all those odd bits! When I finally get it all done, with face, ears, and floppy arms and legs - so cute! I can't wait to see what all of you make from the pattern!

I planned to write more about the kits, but a wee baby is demanding my attention :)
