It is getting colder outside and in. Soon I will have to give in and turn on the heat. I really hate to admit summer is really over and fall has arrived. The leaves are turning and falling. It is really a pretty time of year. Before you know it winter will be here in full force with declining temperatures and inches of white snow. I do enjoy the changing seasons.
It is time to pull out the hats, scarves and gloves. Time to take inventory. I need to ask who wants what and I need to find out what color the kids new winter coats are. They grow so fast! I need to trace their hands so the mittens fit – or are they too big for mittens?
Fall is the perfect season for fingerless gloves and mitts. For this pair of mitts I used Patons Silk Bamboo Yarn in a cocoa brown color called Bark. It is a DK weight yarn that is 70% bamboo and 30% silk. The skeins are 2.2 oz./65g/102 yds. I love the feel of the yarn, so soft and comfy! Unfortunately I needed 2 skeins to complete 1 pair of mitts. The total weight for both mitts = 2 1/2 oz. This pair was made exactly like my Berry Frappe Mitts. You can find the pattern there. The color matches the cocoa brown legwarmers. I like how you can wear the cuff down or rolled up. I showed you both ways in the photo. The fit is perfect and again so soft and comfy to wear!
