It seems very fitting that it’s today that you get to see the Saltire Mitts, being St Andrews Day and all. I was getting carried away about the ideas of all things Scottish, remembering why I loved drinking Irn Bru so much as a treat when I was younger just so I could practise my obviously very Scottish sounding accent saying "made in Scotland from girders" . Sadly I have no good Scottish accent but a few hours in the car with Skein Queen and Kira and hell, I am very Scottish ; )
These mitts are inspired by the Johnny Rotten mitts and specifically as one of the Squeenery asked for them – Skein Queen and I will be launching them in some brand new specially printed stash bags containing the pattern and beautiful hand-dyed merino yarn DK weight, 120 yards each of St Andrews Blue and Naked White….. mmmmmm. The kits will be for sale soon at Skein Queen’s shop, in my shop or you can drop me an email to pre-order.
But if you can’t wait that long, you fancy a bit of a giggle and you fancy celebrating St Andrews Day then enter a wee competition for a Saltire mitt pattern freebie?
In the comment section, tell us your funniest Scottish story with lots of Scottish anecdotes thrown in – the competition will be judged by a Scot and an English girl and it will probably be the most bizarre/ funny story that wins but the squeen loves a bit of blether.
Winner will be decided on Friday 3rd Dec
