As knit by Paivi H., Finland
This latest pair was inspired by Piet Mondrian, the artist. He did so much with straight lines and boxes, with black and white and primary colors! As I was drawing these, I was imagining them in crazy acid colors, subtle earth tones, and black and white. I messed around with the color schemes on the computer, and am currently leaning toward earth tones. (The trick is always to find the yarn in non-wool (due to allergy) in the colors I want, with the appropriate resistance to wear. Oh well.)
The pattern for these and other mittens can be found on Ravelry.com.
