I have a new pattern for sale on Ravelry: Ellipses
The original release was part of the Smart Ass Knitters/World Domination 1 Skein Club from Indigodragonfly. It was a lot of fun to work with fellow smartasses on this one as it brought out our rather morbid (but fun!) side.
Why Ellipses? Sometimes it's better not to talk about how your design ideas happen...**
These mittens are knit in soft, fuzzy Indigodragonfly Organic Merino fingering weight, held double for a more solid mitten. The yarn felts with wear making the mittens cozy warm and almost windproof.
The colourway is Goodbye Kitty. You might notice the bow motif on the hands and the XXs on the cuff (poor kitty). I believe that colour is exclusive to Club members but any varigated yarn will work nicely. As will a dk or light worsted held single.
These are my Spring and Fall biking mittens and they've held up very nicely under hard wear. (In the Winter I wear my Fiddleheads, sometimes with another pair inside).
The pattern includes options for knitting with silk hankies (yum) and to make fingerless mittens. The stitch patterns are in chart form only and while the cuff is a bit fiddly (I love me an applied Icord), the rest is fairly easy.
**No Hello Kitties were hurt in the production of these mittens.
