Our dear girl lost her mittens in York, so my last knitting job before we left UK was to make a new pair. These are made roughly from Petite Purls – Stars or Stripes Mittens by Odessa Reichel. I used 3mm needles all the way through cos that’s what I had. I also made the bands much narrower so that I could get two mittens out of the one ball of yarn. I also knitted an 3 stitch i-cord that goes through the sleeves of a jacket so that these are never lost. Raveled here.
Hi there, my name is Rebecca. I live in the Central Goldfields Region of Victoria, Australia, on Wadawarrung land. This is the place where I share my slow clothing adventures: explorations and reflections on spinning, knitting, sewing and other radical acts of making.
