Fluffy Cuff Mittens!
After all the Christmas knitting was done, and the North Pole took up residence here at the Shore in Sandy’s wake, I decided I’d try my hand at knitting mittens (again). This time, I wanted to teach myself how to use double pointed needles because I wanted to try iMake’s Twiglet Mitts which definitely looked like they’d be better knit with DPNs rather than magic loop (which hurts my hands anyway).
I’d just finished the Frostlight scarf for Sarah in the Bernat Natural Alpaca and had some dark gray and cream skeins of that same yarn put aside for myself. Mittens! I checked suggested patterns on Ravelry for that yarn and found the Fluffy Cuff Mittens from Stitch ‘N Bitch: The Knitter’s Handbook done in just that yarn in just those colors! Even better, I owned a copy of that book.
I was going to make these mittens mine – and I did!
Here’s a closeup – don’t they look great against the brick?
Cast on my own Frostlight in the same gray to match the mittens a few days ago. Now I think I should make a pair of these mitts for Sarah to match her scarf!
Then again, I really should finish Joe’s Exeter hat!
