…one of my very favorite things about knitting is seeing someone wear – and love – something I’ve made for them.
Thank you, dear Honoré, for brightening my week with this photo of you wearing the mitts I knit you for your birthday!
Honore loves to write and she loves to be outside; I figured fingerless mitts might be just the thing to keep her hands (somewhat) warm for both. The colorway – Malabrigo’s Liquidambar – was inspired by her Baltimore Album Quilt (there’s a photo near the bottom of this post that shows the fabric).
The colors are cozy and warm…and I enjoyed the knitting along with several cups of tea (in mugs that matched perfectly)!
This is the second time I’ve made these mitts; and I cannot recommend the pattern highly enough. Even better, most skeins of worsted weight yarn will make two pairs (even if you make the mitts a smidge longer than the pattern suggests, like I did this time – you can see my notes on Ravelry here).
Wishing you a wonderful weekend; hope it’s full of cozy and warm!
