Mittens, mittens, and more mittens!

From Fair Isle to chunky wool blends, I’ve been busily knitting mittens this week.

These are my original design, which I am calling “Marilyn’s Mittens”. Their namesake is in honour of the recipient – I wanted to create a simple mitten that was warm like a hug and incorporated Marilyn’s favourite colours.

These are the Fair Isle mittens I am creating using a stunning ombré yarn with a light blue contrast:

*The hair elastic “stitch holder” was an invention using only the materials available to an ill-prepared knitter on a boat. Have you ever had to get inventive when it comes to knitting supplies?
