Ravelry Roundup: Sporting Mittens

Lots of knitters use Ewe Ewe yarns and they share their patterns on Ravelry. There's so many great ideas and I love to see how people use my yarn and turn it into amazing projects! Here are just a few.

Sheep! Look at the mittens stashcastlerock knit in our Ewe So Sporty yarn. The Valais Blackness Sheep Mittens look simply adorable and now I want a pair!

CloverHill calls the project "1st mittens" on Ravelry. Does that mean they are the first pair of mittens that she's ever knit? Because they're pretty amazing! What's better than pink and white chevron mittens, not much I say!

The pair of Techie Twosome knit by catmujer in Ewe So Sporty yarn are pretty great. I really like that she's keeping warm with her beer instead of a smart phone. That seems like a win to me!

What a beautiful pair of fingerless gloves KansanAtHeart knit for her sister! Knitters are so nice.

Are you on Ravelry? You should add me as a friend and join the Ewe Ewe Yarns group, too!
