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!
I LOOOOVE those colors together!! Beautiful!
Thank you! I think you should have a pair of these too. 🙂 xx
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!
Oh yes, goes so well, as with paint in a room, to make the trim two shades darker 😉 Thanks a lot Laine xx
I love these! That little pop of red just makes that pair.
Becky thanks, and if you would like to knit a pair gratis, I’m having a give-away for today details here: http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/jenjoyce-design-patterns/3249717/426-450#442
