New Design

I have been working on a new fingerless mitts design this month and have finally finished knitting two pair to try to check the pattern for errors or confusion. The first pair were knitted with Sensation Kashmira yarn, which is a very lovely yarn that has been discontinued. Sensation Kashmira is a worsted weight wool, but is actually more like a DK weight. I love the red colorway, and I really designed these mitts for Valentine's day. I was exploring ideas about hearts and x's and o's, but I love the idea of the lines apart, then meeting and parting again, thus the name Sweet Partings.  I knit the second pair with Paton's Classic Wool DK Superwash. The Paton's is very nice, but not as soft or defined as the Kashmira.
 This is the Sensations Kashmira.

 This is Paton's Classic Wool DK Superwash in the color way of Eggplant.
This pattern is available as a free download on Ravelry.
