FO: Eunny’s Endpaper Mitts


Pattern: Endpaper Mitts by Eunny Jang (free pattern)
Yarn: Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift in Old Gold and Plum wine (lovely names!) they took less than 1x25g ball in each colour!!
Needles: 2.25mm blue sky alpaca dpns and 2.75mm Brittany dpns


I love this pattern. It was great fun to knit and as I’ve said previously gave me the opportunity to learn some new techniques. I really enjoyed colour stranding and will definitely be looking out for more colour knitting projects to do. I am always really impressed with the thought Eunny puts into every detail of her designs - like the purl fake ‘seam’ down both sides of these - just perfect! I think that I’m going to get lots of wear out of these gloves because the plum wine colour is one of my favourites.

I apologise for my scarily pale skin in the photos ! I've included a picture of the reverse side of the knitting because I think the colour stranding method produces such a neat tidy finish!





I finally gave into temptation this week and bought some cute stitch markers from Knitz and Glitz. I bought the mobile charm versions and they are now firmly attached to my knitting tool bag. Aren’t the little glass sheep adorable. The markers were so reasonably priced I couldn’t resist.

Oh the gloves are truly lovely and I also love the colour combination; you have done a beautiful job. Great stitch markers I must treat myself to some new ones ; I have bought some from her for others but not for me :(

Absolutely gorgeous gloves, the colourwork is so effective and makes the practical glove so delicate and feminine. Well done, they look really complicated and you have done a fab job.

You did yourself proud! Those gloves look great. I didn't think to show off my stitch markers by attaching them to the zip on my tool bag......great idea! Love the sheep.....

They are beautiful, and being fingerless I suppose you can wear them while you're typing, and even knitting?

Your mitts came out beautifully! They look like a tapestry on the inside and outside. Those stitch markers are a great reward (as is the warmth of your hands). :)

Maggie said...

The mitts are adorable! You did a fabulous job on them!! I have yet to try very much stranding and from the looks of the reverse side of the mitt, you've got it down-pat. I'm going to have to check out Eunny's link. Your stitch markers are adorable and a knitting tool bag? I have never seen one of those before, but what a great idea!

Just catching up on my reading.
What lovely mitts and what beautiful hands showing them off! The insides are so neat too. Kathleen (who has link sausages for fingers.) x
