These snug-fitting fingerless mittens have been my go-to comfort pattern for many, many years now. When I don’t know what to make, I make this.

It has comforted me through family losses, anxiety and stress, knitting anhedonia, as well as last minute panic gifts.

This pattern gives me great comfort - it’s like a hug for the hands - but it took me a long time to be ready to share it with the world. It was feeling I had no idea how to explain. When my son came along and I was no longer the bottom branch on my family tree, deep down I felt like it was the right time.
