Yarns: Novita Wool #10 off-white
and for the lining Garnstudio Drops
I knitted the first pair of my Cloud Mittens last summer. I wanted to capture the fluffy clouds that sail idly through the blue summer sky so that I would have something to reminisce during the long and dark winter months. The mittens make me smile every time I wear them; it's as if I carry a piece of summer with me whenever I use them. For this second pair I also wanted to draw inspiration of the current season and chose white and gray to represent the clouds right before snowfall (even though we have no snow at the moment. I wish we would get some in time for Christmas...).
I've been promising to write down the pattern ever since I published the first photos of the mittens. And the pattern has been in making ever since. (I just checked and I've drawn the charts already in the beginning of August.) But for some reason I just haven't found a way to easily explain the instructions in a way that every one of you would understand. Finally I decided to retrace my steps by knitting another pair and trying to write down the instructions as I went ahead. That actually worked and I believe my messy notes are now transformed into an understandable format.
