Snowmelt Mitts are finished after a whirlwind of ‘stress knitting’ during the last two weeks. I have got the pattern up and running too, and they are indeed Pure Sweetness, in form of half mitts, with options of longer shaped gauntlets, or full-finger’d mittens too… the whole kit.
You can also see details on Ravelry’s Snowmelt Mitts page . . .
After this whole Mitts escapade, I realized I have really missed making them. But, seriously folks, don’t you think a Snowmelt Cardigan might be a lovely adventure? Perhaps for next Spring, when the snow in the Sierra’s melts once again.
The original snowmelt photo which inspired the colorway of blues & pinks . . .
SO SWEET! I love the up close picture.
Oh thanks ! 🙂
Hi Morrie… thanks 🙂 xx
Seeing these finished mitts, I can see flowers pushing up through the snow with spring coming.
Its the most metaphorical image to me, about delicateness and strength and a freshness inconceivable to capture in a photo.
They’re beautiful. I think a cardigan with a band of flowers would be delightful!
Okay Sally, I may bother you with asking to test-knit then ? 😉
I’d be very interested, depending on weight (we’re moving into summer here so anything else would not get worn until next year!)
Jen, I’m in the front line to test a snowmelt cardigan when you design it! I think it will be beyond lovely!
Isabel, how nice for you to stop in! Now that you want one, for Filipa, no doubt 🙂 , I just have to design one, size run 28 to 48 you think? (if for Filipa, would you knit size 28? )
Yes, that’s exactly her size, so sweet of you!
Great, I’ll have the size run go from 28 to 42 🙂 xx
Oh, and am thinking the DK option (or any DK wool) would make the size run go in the same stitch sequence, from 33″ – 50″ .
Absolutely sweet ! Long life to this pattern, together with the tam’s 🙂
Thank you ! I sure hope it does well!
These are just so lovely!
Thank you so much! 🙂
Thanks Lizzi! 🙂
These mitts are really beautiful! Congratulations!
Thanks ! 🙂
