|Oak Leaf and Mary Mitts|
I like to wear them in the house (or office if you are an office person) on a chilly day. Fingerless mitts also are just right for chilly summer evenings outside. Actually, last summer, at the Calgary Folk Festival with my friend, Mary, we wore fingerless mitts in the rain.
These mitts are named after that very Mary, but not because of the rainy day at the festival. The blue and white yarn that makes up the raised stripes on these mitts, remind me of the sky, (blue sky white clouds) and THAT reminds me of Mary. On any day, I can ask Mary what the sky looks like, and she can tell me... so, these are Mary Mitts.
The pattern is Iridis Fingerless Mitts by Penelope Privett of Australia. She talks about the design in her blog. http://peneknitcrochet.blogspot.ca/2014/03/knitting-in-action.html
