I’d really like to finish my Wine and Roses Mitts before the winter is out, so last weekend I sat down and worked on them. I’ve finished the first one, and have cast on for the second. It was lovely to try on the first mitt – it’s beautifully soft. I have quite small hands (I’m yet to find an adult with smaller hands than me), so I was worried about it being too big on my hand, but there’s not a problem – the mitt just sat on my hand beautifully.
I really like the lace pattern in the mitts. It’s elegant, and a little bit “vintage”. A word of advice: when the pattern asks you to bind off loosely, it really means it. I suspect you can’t be too loose.
