#nhkmittenkal

Claire of NH Knits podcast was inspired by my Selbu Peace&Love mittens to arrange a colourwork mitten KAL in her Ravelry group. I decided that would be a good opportunity to make a pair of mittens that someone else had designed, and I chose Giraffes at Sunset Mittens by Erica Mount, which had been a favourite pattern since the first time I saw it.


I used yarn from stash, small left overs of different 2ply fingering wool.  I chose a different cuff, just because I wasn’t in the mood for a colourwork cuff. 


For the second mitten, the giraffes walked away, and in came an elephant mom and her babyThe elephant charts are adapted from a chart found on Pinterest, and then I added a tree from the cuff to fill the space above the elephants.


Finished mittens, front...



... and back. 

Lovely the pattern, and it was so fun to knit and "paint" with my different colours. I have not tried them out in the cold, because spring is here, but I suspect they are really warm!
