Biking mittens


Preparing for colder times, even if it currently is very warm here. I have started to prepare for fall by knitting. This far I have completed one pair of mittens, I lost my good biking mittens half way through the winter last year and never got around to making new ones as the bike needed repair as well. But now that I’m biking everywhere again new mittens will be necessary.

They are made in Du Store Alpakka, Tynn Alpakka and the pattern is my own, made up as I go. As I usually do, I used two different shades of gray held together which makes it look more natural gray instead of dyed gray which it is.  I used 3mm needles, 48 stitches for the main hand width and 100 gram is enough for one pair.

It’s been quite some time since I finished and wrote this post but somehow photos have taken a long time to get, since the weather is no longer that brilliant that is was and the use don’t feel that distant anymore even if I hopefully won’t need that for another month. However I really like this type of mittens and according to ravelry this is my 11:th pair, most of them live with friends and relatives. That said it is the perfect mittens for our climate most of the winter and they’re really quick so, make some for your self won’t you?

A par of mittens

Me and my fiance went to Tummelisa one of my local yarn shops to bye buttons for my new OWLS, but we didn’t find any buttons. My fiance P did for the first time ask me to knit something for him, a par of mittens in Debbi bliss arn tweed, this is the mitten made after his instructions. So I think that it really is his pattern radar then mine. Pattern link
