More mitts! I designed these for my husband, who wanted a really snug fitting pair of mitts. He can even play his mandolin or guitar with these on. And once I got them finished, I liked them so much, I made a pair for myself in blue!
The yarn is Quince & Co's Tern. Truly a lovely yarn. It's warm and soft, but with a lot of strength and a bit of shine. Nice. They've got a nice deep garter stitch cuff, which feels snug and comfy.
They were a quick knit...very gratifying! And who can't use another pair of mitts?
