Perri


I saw these Fair Isle mittens in an issue of Let's Knit and have wanted to make them ever since. Two days ago I finished a pair of cabled fingerless gloves by Patons, so I know feel confident enough to have a go at fair isle. I'm halfway through the first glove and so far I'm very please with the results. I'm currently working on the thumb gusset so I'm taking my time to ensure I work the thumb correctly. The original design was made using Artesano yarn but I'm doing mine in the left over King Cole Pricewise yarn used for the Pom Pom Winter Hat. I can't wait to see the finished results.
