18th Century Mitts

The blog has moved and this post can now be found HERE.


  1. WOW!! You're good! :)
    I just got done knitting my first project (modern). Mittens with a cable twist down the middle. I found it quite fun. :)

  2. Good post, love the mitts.
    Regards, Le Loup.

  3. Wonderful! I have been thinking about making some linen mitts, but have some lovely wool yarn to knit up sp I am probably going to make mine early-to-mid-19th century style. I love the elegant simplicity of yours. And WOW - 4 days?! Amazing!

  4. Thanks all! I am just a little bit proud of myself, I admit :)

    Since I didn't have work that week I had plenty of time to knit, just like I had a lot of time to sew the London hood the week before.

  5. Lovely indeed and quite functional as well. having recently tried our hand at sewing a pair of simple linen mitts, we've quite a high regard for your talents. our own poor talent is quite slim and resulted in a lovely pair of left hand mitts. a second set of right handers corrected the problem sufficiently to allow a pair to share with a dear friend.


I love to hear from you - please comment!
