I’ve been longing to share these… but, y’know, it was Christmas, and they were for Christmas, and she’d’ve seen.
So I’ve had to sit on them (not literally, though I guess that’s a potential new way of blocking?)
My sister, an artist (amongst other things, in a multi-talented, envy-provoking fashion), London-dweller and she of the chilly wrists, asked me for some fingerless gloves for Christmas.
I knew they had to be delicate, as is she. And she wanted long cuffs.
Being newly in possession of some Bloomsbury DK, I figured it would be perfect for the job.
A spot of horseshoe lace, some hand-dyed merino wool, a few eyelets, and voila! The Sophisticate Mitts were born.
And just because I can, here are a gazillion more pictures:
If you fancy a crack at them, the pattern is here.
I hope everyone has had a fabulous Christmas and that the New Year holds love, laughter and prosperity for you all ❤
