I decided to make them really close fitting mittens as I really like how it looks and feels on the hand. Here are some pictures of the completed mitten
I was planning to do fingerless mitts to match my Ederra shawlette but changed my mind as I was knitting them and went for mittens instead. It just seemed like a better solution. I’m almost done knitting the first mitten, I only have the thumb left to do. I’m still unsure how exactly the thumb will be. A lot of my designing ends up being improvised as I go…
I finished knitting a shawlette with my beautiful Wollmeise brown yarn and am now working on a pair of fingerless mittens to match it. When these are finished too, the patterns will be test knitted and then published. I really like how the shawlette has turned out! Its name is Ederra, that is Basque for beautiful.
Autumn is here and, with it, a new knitting enthusiasm from me! Summer is just a bit too hot to be excited to knit.
Yesterday, I started knitting on a new design with a beautiful Wollmeise yarn in an autumn shade (Spice Market colourway), very appropriate for the season. I’m very excited about how this is turning out, I love the colour!
Here are a couple of preview pictures…
