A test-knit is finished and released, so I have yet another FO to share!
Pattern: Mintyfresh’s Merion Mitts, hot off the presses
Yarn: MadelineTosh Worsted, color “Celadon Pottery” (from initial run of Magnolia Society)
Time to Knit: A couple of weeks–these are very quick.
Notes/Modifications: No modifications, since this was a test-knit. I’m not even sure if I really have notes for you, but I love these mittens so much that I want to at least share some pictures with you.
These mittens are chock full of very clever details. Seed stitch palms (including the inside of the thumb!), a slightly curved shape, and twisted rib.
They fit very well, and even though I test-knit the small size for my sister-in-law I wished I could keep them for myself. Jacob loved them too, as he loves everything hand-knitted.
The yarn, too, is fantastic:
Amy named this color “Celadon Pottery”, and you can see for yourself what an amazing job she did. It’s a dream to work with, soft but sturdy, and one can’t really say enough about how great MadTosh colors are.
Two enthusiastic thumbs up!
