Y’all, these fingerless gloves from Moon of Silver are just awesome. I don’t know what kind of yarn Carolynn used, but it made for some of the softest, warmest mittens I own. Also? They’re really stinkin’ cute: I’ve already gotten several compliments on them.
I “met” Carolynn online through a mutual blogging friend, Vanessa, over at Bible, Beer and Babies. I use “met” loosely, since I’ve never met either of these ladies in person. Vanessa and I have been blog friends now for well over a year, and I think her combination of Lutheran theological exploration and beer blogging is pretty epic.
Vanessa wrote a feature post and did a giveaway featuring Carolynn’s Etsy shop earlier this fall. I saw the post and fell in love with Carolynn’s work. When she offered me a free item from her shop in exchange for a blog post, I jumped at the chance to promote her stuff: online and as a real-life product model. Product modeling adorable, soft, and warm mittens is totally up my alley, especially since mittens hide my mostly-crooked, less-than-perfect phalanges.
Carolynn is a work-at-home momma loves knitting. She created her Etsy shop, Moon of Silver, to try to make what she loves doing into a viable job. Knitting for a living definitely beats working at a call center or flipping burgers. Won’t you please give some retweet love, share love, or—or better yet—transactional love to this sweet momma?
