snowfling mittens

When you live in "Winterpeg," you need some good mittens.


And I think mine are THE BEST!!

This is likely the fanciest thing I have ever knit up, my first go at colorwork, and while they appear really advanced, they were quite simple to do.  It is a pattern and kit by Tanis Fiber Arts aptly named "Snowfling Mitts."  I tested them- they fling snow alright!



Not only are they perfectly adorable on the outside, they are LINED with a super soft and happy coloured cashmere wool blend to keep your hands extra toasty!   That little flash of colourful lining makes me so happy, like a best kept secret :)


(I love the picot edging at the wrist- so many cute details like that in this pattern)

These have already gotten plenty of good use and have received many compliments.  I feel like a knitting rock star!  These should definitely help with the winter blues when the snow is still here in, like, April.

no wonder you're happy with them, they're fabulous! It almost makes me want to break out my knitting needles, almost, but not quite!

Fab mittens, and love the lining! At least you do something fun with your snow with the Festival du Voyageur, the Saskatchewanites do bugger all with theirs!

Love them. They looks amazingly warm and the design is just beautiful. I may have to have a go at making a pair myself.

Oh wow, those are beautiful!! And I love that they're lined. :D I just learned to knit, and this still looks like it required some serious magic to make it work. :)

Wow - these are amazing and they give me inspiration! I'm going through your wonderful blog and finding your Anna Maria Horner quilt just made my heart beat faster! Could you tell me the pattern?
Thanks so much-

you know I love these so much. Now you just need to make room for me to visit so I can make some and have a place to wear them

Katherine said...

Wow! These are the most gorgeous mittens I have seen. Loving every detail - like that picot edging. I officially have mitten envy. :o)
Don't know that my knitting skills are up to this though... I can manage socks, and fingerless gloves, but never tackled mittens. How tricky is this?

They are the bees knees! The two colours look so good together, and then the purple lining! Superb!
