Nifty!

blockers_1Do you remember a month or so ago when I was wailing and gnashing my teeth over the distressing lack of mitt blockers in the world?  Ok, perhaps not actually wailing, but certainly carrying on in an unbecoming fashion.

Well, it seems that there are some people who, when confronted with such a distressing lack, do something other than cry in their cornflakes.  Some people choose to solve problems instead of just pointing them out and then standing around waiting for them to magically fix themselves.  It turns out that Lizzy of Yarnluvinlizzy is one of these exceptional people. She’s made mitt blockers!  Not only did she make mitt blockers, she sent me mitt blockers.

I have to say, they are pretty darn nifty.  They’re made of a lovely natural wood, sanded perfectly smooth, and varnished to make them waterproof.  Don’t be fooled by their delicate appearance, they are quite sturdy.  If you too have been plagued by a dearth of mitt blockers, I can wholeheartedly recommend these.  I have a feeling you’ll be seeing a lot of them as I continue to indulge my new-found fondness for fingerless mitts.

For those wondering, the mitts are Adumbrate, and this is the last day to get them as a free pattern.  Some time this weekend I’m switching it over to a for sale pattern, so go grab it now if you’ve been waiting.
