Just a quick post to share a pair of mitts I knitted up for my sister’s birthday. She’s just transferred to UCSB and I’m pretty sure she will need something to keep her hands warm while studying in the coming months.
I used the Cranford Mitts pattern, though really it’s just a basic horseshoe lace pattern in a tube with a simple thumb gusset. I’m looking forward to making this pattern again using other Shetland lace patterns, I love old-fashioned knitted lace!
I used Paton Kroy self-striping sock yarn. The yarn was nice to use, and I almost matched the two mitts. Close enough, anyway!
