I'm in love!
So, so in love with these new mitts of mine. The colours, the puffy stitches, the ziggy zags, everything about them makes me very happy inside.
If you've been following for a while, well since last winter any time, you'll probably have gathered by now that I'm a bit nutty about mitts, or wrist warmers, and the obsession show no signs at all of slowing down this year. They are just such a snuggly thing to wear when the chilly days start coming. They provide a little extra warmth for those crisp days in Autumn and sorely needed coziness when the harsh grey days of winter settle. Essential wear in fact, especially for those shorter sleeved cardigans.
For once, most unlike my usual self, I actually have the pattern ready all go straight away. Pretty surprising, no? I was so excited by these mitts I just couldn't wait to get it all sorted out and ready to go. Now I've made these and I've fallen for them so hard, I kind of want to make all sorts of things to go with them. A hat maybe, or a scarf - oh a nice snuggly, puffy scarf, that would be so good... yes, there are definite possibilities.
I've made these in lovely Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, such a lovely soft yarn and it wears pretty well I find, so a practical choice for wristies. But most of all, those colours, (which are all still available at time of going to press - I checked) are just fantastic and zingy together. Zingtastic in fact!
