Work in Progress: Pip mittens

Pip mittens
These are a re-do. I made Pip a pair of awesome “Mittens from Halland” a few years back from the pattern in Marcia Lewandowski’s excellent book Folk Mittens. They stuck around for an impressively long time and were then lost.

I’m making them out of a different yarn this time. Last time it was a random 100% sheep wool I picked up at the Needlecraft Expo. This time it’s Berrocco Ultra Alpaca. I’ve got one mitt done, and am working on the cuff of the other. I’m doing the entire left cuff in the 2-colour rib this time. Switchin’ it up a bit.

I recently ordered some of Jared‘s Shelter as well as the pattern for Terra. I have a little shudder of delight every time I think of it.
