When I saw a picture of the Wintergreen Mitts on Instagram I just had to make a pair. But when I checked out the yarn they were knitted in, I realised they were going to be ridiculously pricey, so I decided I’d have to do without them.
However, a short while later, I remembered I had a few small balls of Dartmoor Yarn Company 4ply Shetland/Ryeland blend, left over from other projects.
I was incredibly over-excited at how well the colours went together in this mitt – of course, that is what I intended to achieve when I dyed the Shetland/Ryeland batch. But still, it’s exciting when you see it happen in your knitting.
I love these mitts and they’re a bargain knit if you’ve some left over blues and greens that will blend nicely.
