Knitting,  Needlework,  vintage reproduction

New wristers pattern underway

So November is here and there’s snow arriving in Huron County. It’s time to return to mitten knitting.

It’s been years since I’ve made mittens; about 20 in fact. But, I’ve been thinking about a history-inspired stranded mitten pattern and I can’t get the colour-work idea out of my mind.

The fair isle portion (see next post) that I plan on doing is a reproduction of the colourwork pattern of a pair of heirloom knitted gloves in the collection of the Huron County Museum and Historic Gaol located in Goderich, Ontario.

Happy Stitching!
