HANDS :: Family Mittens

familymittens   As this first month comes to a close, I hope it isn't too late to say Happy New Year! All of us here at Taproot are hard at work on finishing up our next issue, BREATHE. It's almost ready to go to the printer and we can't wait to share it with you! I will tell you one thing...get ready for some COLOR thanks to the work of our new cover artist, Geninne Zlatkis. Color! Just the thing all of us need this time of year, I'd say. In between the good work of putting this issue together, those of us here in New England are also finding plenty of other things to do, keeping our hands busy and warm. I recently finished up these mittens (dyed with tansy, dried from summertime) using the wonderful pattern Family Mittens, by Carrie Bostick Hoge, featured in ISSUE 3 :: RETREAT. Another welcome burst of color in wintertime. ~ amanda
