I’ve been knitting mittens! Flip top mittens to be precise.
The cap flips back. The loop you see will wrap around a button that hasn’t yet been sewn on. I made them up myself and actually just cast on 44 stitches and kept going, seeing what they would become as I went along. The twisted stitch design on the back of the hand is an old Austrian pattern that I found in a book by Maria Erlbacher.
The yarn is Supreme Possum Merino, 8ply, from my shop. Super soft and super warm. I’m going to write up the pattern and put it on Ravelry for FREE! Yippee!
Oh and by the way, these photos were taken at night under my lovely new daylight lamp. Isn’t it great!
