Whoops!! Clun Forest Mittens

Whoops...I forgot to take a photo of the mittens and now they are in the hands of the walnut supplier.
Oh well.

The cuffs were knit with my blend of Canadian merino and Clun Forest. Drun carded, but a tweedy blend which gave the dark walnut colour a little bit of a taupe cast to the colour. Interesting.

The body of the mitt was knit in a slightly lighter walnut shade and the finger tips area was a very dark brown. The thumbs were the very dark brown.

Turned out very nice with the shade variations making it more interesting.

The pattern was made by myself from the measurement of my hands which I believe to be average.
