A Tale of Two Mitts

Pattern: The left hand mitten is Green Thumb  by Diana Foss and the right hand is a mystery patternalso from Ravelry.
Made before? Made the Green Thumb in beautiful Rowan kidsilk with sequins. Now, alas lost! Also made it for my sister-in-law – and her’s have gone the way of well-used mittens, too.
Will make again? Yes.
Adjustments? None – except for inadvertent changes to the mystery pattern.

I love making mittens and this is exactly the right time of year for them in Melbourne. The Accountant actually needs them as he has terrible circulation and his fingers lose all colour when we’re walking in the winter. I am sorry I haven’t been able to give a pattern name to his mittens. Although, the designer might be pleased as I inadvertently misread the pattern so they are not really like her pattern!

Thanks to Helen for our lovely blog update – don’t you think it’s looking great?
