I have a second passion: I collect seaglass and make silver jewellery with it (which, incidentally, you can find here).
But the fingers get a little chilly when you’re hunting through the briny waves in the winter.
So: I give you Seaglass Mittens. Decorated with waves and sparkles, with tops to keep the fingers warm, which flip back when you’ve spotted something special in the sand.
They are long enough to keep the wrists warm under jumper and coat sleeves, too. I do like to keep my wrists warm.
If you fancy a go at them yourself, the pattern can be found here
In other news, having fallen out of the woolly groove towards the end of the year, I set myself a challenge: a jumper between Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. I had something very specific in mind.
