Wintergreen Gloves « The Daily Skein. These cute fingerless gloves are inspired by traditional Selbu mittens. The construction differs from the historical mittens and uses a thumb gusset on the side of the hand instead of a gusset on the palm, but the motifs are all taken from traditional patterns. I can’t decide if the main motif reminds me of hearts, mint leaves, or snowflakes. The construction is essentially the same as the Snowflake and the Albuquerque Fingerless Gloves.

But these gloves only use five colors (and the background color doesn’t change)! I love knitting these style gloves. SN0111 Lettuce Knit Arm Warmers. Keep warm.

Foliage Lace Mitts

I began knitting it last summer but was a bit too frustrated with the pace of knitting lace (slow) as well as the amount of concentration required for such an endeavor (lots). I put it away with the best intentions of coming back to it at some point. That point happened to be a full year later on the eve before I embarked to California.

I hadn’t been knitting anything, and decided that I needed a project to work on while waiting in airports, train stations, or needed some downtime. Issue 56 – Nederland Mitts. The Story: When I designed the Nederland Vest I always intended it to have matching armbands inspired by mangas, the decorative arm warmers which were once an important element of Andean men’s costume.

Issue 56 – Nederland Mitts

Mixing it up, as I’m wont to do, I chose a traditional Fair Isle pattern and I added a ribbed cuff with a thumb opening, so the bands can be worn either as mitts, or like sleeves when the cuff is folded up. Arm warmers are a surprisingly useful garment in today’s world of fluctuating temperatures—imagine freezing outside in your fashionable coat with the ¾ length sleeves, only to be sweltering in the office when you go inside. Wear the Nederland vest with a Tee and if it gets chilly, pull on the arm bands. If you venture outside, fold down the cuff, slip your thumb in the thumbhole and you’re good to go, safe from the elements!
