Mittens Pink and blue

 I have forgotten to post about these little mittens that I knitted. The wool was bought in a very nice shop in Devon, UK, in Bovey Tracey. The shop is called Spin A Yarn and the staff is ever so helpful. I wish they were closer and I could visit often, take part in workshops and buy more wool. All the town is worth a visit for tourists with a river, art centre, and restaurants. There used to be a quilt shop, Serendipity, but it closed and was taken by new owners I believe, somewhere else in Devon. Too bad as they were very good.

So I made these mittens and I love them. I had more than enough for one pair, so started another one, and had to reorder just a little bit of wool. Maybe at some point I will make some more.

One pair has gone to my Mum for Christmas, the blue ones.
They are very good when the weather is a bit cold, not for a blizzard, and you are going in and out of shops for example. You don't want to take your gloves off every 2 minutes, so mittens are perfect.

Enjoy your sewing.

Lovely! My mother-in-law used to knit me gloves: I ave two fingers missing on my left hand, so I always had mittens, but she adapted a pattern for me, lovely lady! I really like the stripe on yours
