Well, I must say I LOVE how this knittin looks. I even got used to spinning the ball of yarn to untwist it.
For my recent birthday my family gave me the book “twined Knitting, a Swedish Folkcrafrt Technique”. It was too expensive for my blood but I love this book. Now I have to return the copy I was using to the Textile Center Library.
A friend commissioned these mittens to match a new coat.
The mitts were knit in black, Gems Merino DK weight yarn. For some reason my camera didn’t work very well. I’ll need to get better photos!!
The beads on the cuff were knit in as I went. Notice how I did the thumb gusset. I wanted these to be a one of a kind!
Here they are after I crocheted beads onto the back of the mitts. The coat these were made to match is red with half circle designs in black. I think the mitts match very well. Now I just need to figure out what is wrong with my cameral!
