Quince & Company Chickadee for inner mitt in Chantarelle and Malabrigo Finito in Archangel
What was your inspiration?
These were made for a great friend and neighbor, who is also a knitter. She is expecting her third baby any day now and hoping for a sweet baby girl. These feminine mitts were made just for her, so if she has a girl, she has something sweet to wear with her baby girl, and if she has another boy, she still has something sweet and girlie, just for her!
What are you most proud of?
I was very pleasantly surprised that the fingering weight Finito knit up at the same gauge as the sport weight for the outer mitts. They are a great pairing, so soft and feminine.
