Pink and Brown Mitten



At last a bit of time to finish the unfinished. Do you believe that only the thumb was unfinished on this pair of mittens? It must have gotten warm in a hurry last spring, though I recall deep, late, snowfall.

A simple pleasing repeat makes up this mitten by Inger Fredholm, from her delightful self-published book Knitting With A Smile.

I used a watermelon pink and a dusty brown from Frog Tree Alpaca, which I think is actually merino, I've lost the ball bands.

My bet is that during that snowstorm, you decided to cast on mittens -- then the snow melted, it was spring, mittens were put aside! Now for the satisfying finish.

Mary Jane,
You are so talented! I love the colors you used, I just want to print out your photo and frame it for inspiration! I just found Inger's book nestled into a cozy little nook at a shop just waiting for me to pluck away and devour one Sunday afternoon a few weeks ago and I fell in love with every single page.
