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!
