end of may.

I finished my heavily modified End of May mittens and gifted them to my sister in law for Christmas this year.

I am so excited about the fit and look of these that I have to make myself a pair in different colors.

For these mittens, I used Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in the espadrilles colorway for the main, and holi festival, that gorgeous Madtosh speckled yarn, for the contrasting diamonds. Instead of doing the floral motif on the top, I decided to use the diamonds mosaic on the tops and bottoms of the mittens.

They came out smashingly, I think. I love the way the speckled holi festival looks exciting and different here, and subtle enough for an adult to wear every day.

See my project notes here. See them when they were in progress here.  See more photos of my mittens here.
