My new Kerkstraat mittens are out!

Hi everybody!

I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year!

As of later today, I will be starting on a folk high school, which is a sort of six month long course - in my case focused on journalism. I'll be living there for six months, which I'm really excited about, although it's also kind of weird, and I haven't really wrapped my mind around it yet!

Anyways, I just managed to finish my new Kerkstraat pattern before I leave! Yay!

The mittens are made using fingering weight yarn, which makes a very detailed pattern. The Kerkstraat mittens have a cable pattern on one side and a slip stitch palm on the other.

They're knit using the lovely Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light, which I bought on my trip to Amsterdam last summer - hence the name Kerkstraat, which is a street in Amsterdam.

I'm really excited about this new pattern, and I hope you like it, too!

See you guys!
