Twists

jenjoycedesign© Twists Mitts

Yesterday and today I made myself one of my most recent designs,

a pair of   Twists Mitts  to match the colorway of my favorite walking shirt…

I thought the result was pretty successful, and I love the yarn (Berocco Ultra Alpaca).  The shirt is an old wool thrift shop find from a few years ago, and I have worn just about every day 7 months out of the year. Anyway, I have been knitting up these mitts recently, trying different yarns and colors. I’m very happy with this simple & very rustic design with cables that almost seem asymmetric and give affect of deep waves which create amazing warmth.

I hope you try knitting yourself a pair to see for yourself how fun these are to make and how amazingly warm they are!

  1. Wonderful! I think some of my favorite color combinations involve pairing a lighter and a darker hue of the same color. Those are just SO pretty!

I'd love to hear what you have to say...
