New England Knits

Looking forward to July 1st when Cecily and Melissa's book is released! I feel so fortunate they included one of my designs in their book—a pair of wooly, slip-stitch mittens.
The inspiration for these hand warmers came directly from a pair I once bought at a thrift store, but have sadly lost some time ago. Those mittens had crazy-hunter orange as the accent color, so I was happy to modernize the color palette with a hard-to-resist gray heather and those lovely, light blues. I also added some stripes to the cuff (I couldn't resist) and modified the stitch pattern (I can't remember the exact slip stitch pattern in the thrifted mitts, but I know it looks/feels different).
