I wear hats and fingerless mitts inside all winter – what can I say? I keep it cold in here – and these have become my absolute favorites. The hat and mitts are both intended to be just a little slouchy, just a little broken-in in feeling. They should give you a hug, rather than stretch sleekly over your skin. I wanted the fingerless mitts, in particular, to feel like legwarmers, but for your arms – so they’re shaped, with a long, slightly-slouched length.
I can’t say enough lovely things about the Green Mountain Spinnery Alpaca Elegance I used for this set. It’s soft, and ever-so-slightly fuzzy, and comes in a wonderful palette of colors. Can you imagine these in a lighter main color, with ombre stripes? Greens and browns? That beautiful blue, with red and tan accents? I want them all.
(I’d better get knitting.)
