Before continuing with the Green Tailored Cardigan, I feel like taking a break with some smaller project. I was going through my Ravelry stash over the summer, putting up pictures of picture-less stuff, even the leftover skeins, and noticed that I had lots of small balls of different colors in this worsted-weight yarn. Colors I wouldn’t normally wear on their own but might just work together in some small accessory. Like mittens.
I’m not really into the whole Latvian mitten or Selbuvotter thing, maybe because I haven’t tried it myself. And most of those patterns are for fingering-weight yarn anyway. I’m not really experienced with stranded knitting so I better start small, or big, as it were. I did find some great worsted-weight patterns, picked one, played around with the colors a bit and voila: Burning Hearts Mittens.
And I totally get the infatuation with stranded knitting now. It’s so mesmerizing watching the picture emerge little by little, row by row. I want more!
