Lilac Mittens

They're finally finished, blocked and had their picture taken!

As a redux, these are the Lilac Mittens, designed by Heather Desserud, available as a free download on Ravelry. The yarn is Sisu sock yarn and the mittens were worked on 2.5 mm circulars. It took me a lot longer to finish them than it should have taken, but, hey, they're done! And I love them! And they're machine washable! Does it get any better than that?

I got them done just in time for the warmer weather, too. How's that for timing? (And yes, I'm being sarcastic... the weather has warmed up and it's rain, rain, rain in the forecast... not really mitten weather.)

So, having freed up a circular, I just had to cast on something, right?

Sorry about the difference in the pictures. I was playing with camera settings; the first picture is closer to actual colour; I'll post more pictures when these are done. In the meantime, you'll just have to wait.


  1. The Lilac Mitts are lovely! Have you seen "Selbuvotter: Biography of a Knitting Tradition" by Terri Shea? There are several lovely patterns in it.

  2. The lilac mittens are beautiful. I just wonder if the cuffs are tight enough to stay in place. The red and white looks so cheerful, bright, happy, bringing a smile…
