Actually, this post should probably be called be smitten with a mitten. Because this cross stitch mitten card has stolen my heart. Made by those clever people at Present & Correct, you simply mark out the stitches on the front (I like to think of them as kisses) to spell the letter or pattern of your choosing. At only £3, it's a very reasonable way to warm the heart of your recipient.
But, you know what, I'd like warm hands too. Whether intended for myself or a nearest and dearest, warm woollen mittens have - along with whiskers on kittens - become my new favourite thing. Here's my handy guide.
Donna Wilson does excellent knitted things. These graph mittens are no exceptions. And they are currently reduced - bonus! You can get this pair from ASOS for £31.50.
More foxy foxes, this time for your paws. These adorable fox mittens are made by London-based Lilli Rose Wicks and cost just over £30 on Etsy.
The colours on these timeless touch mittens from Anthropologie are beautiful. I'd quite like to get these in my stocking, please. These are £28.
And the bargain of the bunch: these Red Herring grey Fairisle mittens are only £9.60, and have that clever 'we're fingerless gloves'/'no we're mittens' dual identity thing going on. Like all these mittens, they're perfect for keeping fingers toasty and hearts warm this winter.
