I present to you my new mittens. I designed the colour work and based the overall shape off of the popular herringbone mittens (my last pair of handknit mittens were the herringbone mittens… until my dogs digested them!). They were inspired by three skeins of patons classic wool (aran, natural mix and heath heather) from my stash and my favorite companion on a stormy winter day, tea!
I love them! They’re toasty warm and totally cute! I just wish I had done a better job on the actual knitting, I had a lot of tension problems and they’re still super evident even after blocking! I am planning on making a “dipped” model with just the last colour change from aran to a bright colour like yellow or hot pink!
