i’m just mad about mittens!

EZ Mitered gloves in Silk Garden

pattern: mitered mittens from Knitter’s Almanac

designer: Elizabeth Zimmermann
yarn: Noro in Silk Garden, colorway
needles: Addi Turbos US size#6
modifications: I used Grace of KathrynIvy’s length specs and thumb modifications

How long have I been meaning to make these mittens? It feels like forever. I’ve been stalking other’s people’s mitered mittens on Flickr and just dreaming and drooling. Well, I am so glad I finally went and got myself a copy of Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Knitter’s Almanac (seriously, how could I not have had this book in my knitting library? crazy!) and knit these puppies up. I LOVE them. The pattern is super-simple, the yarn does all the magic, and they fit fabulously. Using the mods that Grace was wonderful enough to share with us, they were a breeze to knit. I am now ready for winter! Ummmmmm, well, on second thought, not quite, but I am extremely pleased with the mittens.

  1. I like to look at everyone else’s mitered mittens and live vicariously; but, these make me want to knit my own pair. I deserve it! Yours look fantastic!
