mitts for kaitlyn

    Newer Older

    If I can come up with a name for these mitts, I'll write them up as a pattern! The slip stitch was super easy, the yarn (Malabrigo Twist) was a dream, and the mitts are toasty warm. They'll be perfect for a bitingly cold winter day. (Let's hope we're done with those this year!)

      They're beautiful!! Write it up! I can't decide what the texture reminds me of, but I know it's something (kitchen item, maybe?) I see a lot in my day. This is going to bug me all night... ;)

      Oh wow, in Twist? Love 'em. And Shagreen rules as a name.

      hee, I assume that the trouble we were having with the yarn that night then can be attributed to wonky winding? They turned out looking great!

      About shagreen... I didn't realize that the scientific definition encompasses fish skin in general, but when we use it at work it typically refers to shark or stingray leather which features that unique, scaly, gorgeous texture.

      yeah i still don't know what was up with the twistiness. i think bad ball winding on the store's part. and shagreen is a word you use!? i had never heard it til Ashley mentioned it earlier.
