I just came across some seriously gorgeous mittens. I was just minding my own business and BAM there they were. They took me by surprise. They are Borough by Veronica O’Neil and they look amazing! These mittens can be found amongst a fabulous collection of patterns in the latest Knitty. I was just starting to think that perhaps the photographs of carrying wood were what won me over (I always miss camping in the middle of winter), but no, the mittens are awesome.
I realize they are probably technically designed for boys but I say, not to worry! Is there really a gender to mittens?! And the best thing of all? They are knit in one of my favorite indulgences, Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Hand Dyes. The yarn is soft, it has excellent stitch definition and it’s nice and warm on the hands for those windy days out there.
