I found this pattern while wandering around on Ravelry, and was excited to be able to use some of my Brooklyn Tweed Loft stash yarn – this time in colors Long Johns and Fossil.

The pattern is Cozy Morning Mitts, knit on US 1 (for the ribbing) and 3 dons.  You have to focus a little to get the intarsia right and to control the tension, since you’re knitting in a small circle, but otherwise it’s a quick knit – I did one mitt a day.

Although they didn’t need blocking, I soaked and then dried them because Brooklyn Tweed yarn really needs to be soaked in order to feel and look its best.  They fit perfectly – you have to be careful not to snag the many strands of yarn when you’re pulling them off  and on, because they’re not lined, but if they were lined, they would be too thick and heavy, and besides, I would have had to knit linings, too!  So, I prefer them this way – just so long as I remember to turn my ring toward my palm before pulling them on so that I don’t snag anything.
