I’m so excited about the first one of these mittens came out. I decided to modify the End of May mittens (I’ve made them before) to be a repeat of the diamond pattern meant for the undersides.

And I thought using the new speckled Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in the Holi Festival colorway would be that exciting pop of color without feeling too crazy neon. I’m making these mittens for my sister in law for Christmas.


The inside cuff lining is knit with this buttery soft alpaca I had laying in my stash, and the main color is the Tosh Vintage in espadrilles I had leftover from a sweater I made a few years back.

I’m in love with the first one; onto the second.

I think I need a version of these mittens for myself. What do you think? Fun way to use the Holi Festival?
