playing with color


a pair of mitts sent off for a valentines gift. oh boy.

pretty wonky, but based loosely on a pair libby and i saw in a catalog back in december.

i made the wrist portion longer and then folded it inside so rings and fingers wouldn't get caught on floated yarn. 


she says she likes them. (she's a good daughter) 

i think it's a good thing i enclosed chocolate in her package!

  1. Very, VERY cute mitts! I like the blanket stitch detail, and you were soooo smart to line the fair isle portion. I am inspired.
