There’s still plenty of winter left up here to wear these. The ‘Glacial Lake Mittens‘ pattern is now available! Named after the thousands of deep blue lakes that cover the ruggedly beautiful, endless, Canadian shield, these mittens are knit in Jamieson’s Spindrift Shetland yarn. Any fingering weight yarn will do, even leftover sock yarn! The construction is a bit unique. I re-invented it a couple times to optimize the fit and the location of the joins, just so that “convertible” REALLY MEANS “convertible”. I’ve worn these mittens for the last few days and they are very easy to flip back and forth from fingerless to mitten, and the cap lies tight against your knuckles and doesn’t flap about.
The pattern is 40% off ($2.00 USD, instead of the regular $5.00 USD) until March 21.
If you’ve been following this blog for the past few months, you’ve probably seen some of the evolution of these mittens. Well here is the result, and I am quite happy! If I am allowed to say that about my own mittens:) Check out the rest of the posts by clicking on the “Shetland Dewdrop” link in the category menu.
