FO: Little green spring mitts

My green mitts are complete, in time to be seasonally inappropriate.

Pattern: Calculation by Natalie Selles

Yarn: Sweet Paprika Messa di Voce

Notes:
Those of you reading along may remember I only had 42 g of this yarn left, so I was worried about running out. I needn't have worried. Upon finishing, there were 11 g left. Plenty! (What did I do before I had a digital scale?) In fact, next time I would keep knitting for longer lace cuffs in order to use up even more of the yarn. This pattern is great for partial skeins and small amounts of yarn.

It's way too warm for mitts surprisingly, but I'll keep them on hand for the next coldness. Up until now the only mitts I had with me were my pink Endpaper Mitts. I'm fairly relaxed about being non-matchy, but nothing else I have is pink, whereas I have a lot of greens/blues/purples. These are in the same yarn as my Herbivore scarf, and I suspect they will be very useful if I decide I want to start being matchy.

I'm done apologizing for how inaccurate the colour is, but just another reminder - the mitts aren't actually teal. As much as I love teal and wouldn't mind if they were, of course.

  1. Ooh, they look wonderful! I love the cuffs. Aren't digital scales great? I couldn't live without mine.

  2. They're lovely :) And, as much as it is a shame that the weather is currently too warm to wear them, I think I'd like to keep the sun please!

  3. They are really amazing. I am so jealous that it is warm enough for you to be without mittens. I still have to wear my heavy coat and hat here or else I'll freeze. I wish spring would hurry up and come here XD

  4. Must admit, my digital scale was the best little investment I've made in a while.

  5. There isn't anything wrong with a bit of seasonal inappropriateness. Wouldn't want Mother Nature to get ahead of herself, thinking she can dictate our every move now, would we ;)
