Winter Wear

Winter has taken up residence, and new mittens were needed to keep my hands warm. These mittens were knit on size 2 needles, using 100% wool. The yarn is close to a DK weight and created a nice dense knit.

I used this pattern (Midge) from Berroco. The mitten has a long cuff, extending 3 or 4 inches past the wrist, so it will prevent cold or snow from slipping down the coat sleeve.

Does the yarn look familiar? It should: my Eternity Scarf was also knit from this yarn. Now, I have a matching set of Winter Wear.

  8. Lovely warm mittens! I used to enjoy knitting mitts. Added all sorts of odds and ends of yarn for stripes, and so forth. Don't have much call for them where I live.

  9. I've been tempted to try mittens but it's all I can do to knit the socks I want to so I guess I'll stick with them.
