evening hike mitts

 

 

 

 

 

Here are a bunch of photos of my new mitts.  Didn’t they turn out lovely?  The colors on this camera are so spot on I can hardly handle it, no color correcting or levels adjustments needed, and if I can avoid extra Photoshop I’m all for it.

Anyway, these mitts are made from Blue Sky Alpacas Sportweight, which has to be my all time favorite yarn.  It’s so strong, soft, warm, amazing vibrant colors, need I go on?  I didn’t use a pattern per say, I swatched and worked off the favorite points of my favorite gloves and mittens with some help from Vogue Knitting, my every trusty friend.  I’m so happy with the result, and have been imagining these for a while, but was spurred into action recently by the horrid nightmare of knitters everywhere…MOTHS!!! Omg they ate my favorite mittens.  More on that later…ugh!

    Moths are horrible. A few years ago, our building got full of moths and they destroyed all of Dan's sweaters (but not mine…strange I know).

    You did such a perfect job with the mittens. I didn't know that you were a professional knitter 😉

    I am in love with these! They looked like they came right out of an Urban Outfitters magazine. (That's a good thing by the way. I love that store 🙂

    Moths are my nemesis! Ever since I moved into a 100+ year old apartment building we have them. We got pheremone traps that actually work really well. Ugh. I am so grossed out by every and all moths now. Disgusting. Beautiful mitts, by the way! I’m just picking up my knitting needles for the first time since last winter.
