Spartan Mittens

March 28, 2011

I’m trying to knit everyone in the family something for next Christmas and I’m starting now!  There will be about 15 people that I want to knit something for and I hope I can do it.  These Spartan Mittens are for my mother-in-law, who is going to get two pair of mittens – one lined and one not.  She likes mittens.  She is also an Michigan State fan and the colors are dark green and white.

These mittens are knit up with a yarn that is made right here in Michigan, Shepherd’s Wool at Stonehedge Fiber Mill in East Jordan.  It’s a worsted weight and comes in tons of beautiful colors.  The yarn is very soft and so nice to work with.

This particular pattern, Tweed Mittens, by Nichole Reese is a great knit – it looks like you’re stranding, but you’re just slipping stitches.  Love that!  And the mittens are lofty and thick.  I knit these using my beloved Magic Loop technique.

Pattern: Tweed Mittens
Yarn: Shepherd’s Wool
