End Of May Mitts


I knit these beautiful mittens for my sister Lilia for Christmas this year. I've had this pattern for years and am so glad that I finally got around to knitting it. The results speak for themselves. These mitts are so sweet and Lilia loves them!

I made a few very minor mods to this pattern, first off I didn't sew down the lining as the pattern suggests. I opted to knit my lining in a bright turquoise shade and really liked the way it was rolling in on itself and added a pop of fun colour to the mitt, so I just let it do it's thing. I also opted to use 3 contrasting colours: Midnight, Grape and Plum on a background of Sand. The flower motif on the back of the mitt made it really easy to decide where to switch colours.  


Happy New Year to everyone! 2013 is shaping up to be a big year for my family. I cannot wait.
