Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!
Knitted mittens are a great way to keep your little ones hands nice and warm while they’re building a snowman!
Today’s freebie is a cute set of knitted mittens from The Spool Cotton Company’s 1943 book Woolies for Babies. This booklet features Chadwick’s Red Heart Wools. Any one who crochets or knits will probably be familiar with Red Heart yarn.
As a matter of fact the Red Heart Baby Econo Pompadour yarn required for this project is still available in some beautiful colors.
A set of Plastic Sock Needles in sizes No. 1 and No. 4 are needed for #5248 and only No. 4 are required for #5247.
I like this quote from the booklet:
“So whether it’s for your own young hopeful or your Sister Sue’s….for the little lambkin down the lane or the cherub next door….remember everything’s got to be snug as button, warm as a waffle, and ready for that brand-new citizen to nestle into.”
