Sweet mitts

We’ve had the button conversation. Initially I had thought to do some kind of girly edging on Audrey’s mitt, such as a ruffle or picot bind-off. But the Violet’s Pink Ribbon sock yarn seemed to cry out for vintage green buttons. Anyway, I hope they’re not too funkadelic for a 14–year-old.


Pattern: Adapted from The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns: Basic Designs in Multiple Sizes & Gauges

I love those mitts - the 3x1 ribbing, the rolled edge and the BUTTONS!  Perfection.

Ok...I am TOTALLY in love with this. I happen to have a button fixation and so the addition of the green buttons is just...well...fabulous. I can't tell you how much fun it is to see how this yarn is being used so creatively. Brava. :o)
