Beadic Mitts Kits!

Beadic Mitts were born from my love of fingerless gloves and colorwork knitting. The inspiration for this design came from the traditional Fair Isle colorwork we all know and love, only instead of using contrasting yarn to create a Nordic star on the back of our mitts, we’re using beads! This kit was originally released to Lola’s Choice club members , which is my members-only kit club that focuses on small, quick knits. I’m happy to say Beadic Mitts kits are now available for all, with six stunning color combinations to choose from. Beadic Mitts for everyone this year! Since a knitting project is only as good as the yarn it’s knit with (in my humble opinion), let’s first talk about the incredible Exmoor Sock by John Arbon, milled in the UK. This yarn is a lofty blend of Exmoor, Blueface, Corriedale, and Zwarbles (all British sheep breeds), along with 10% nylon for resilience.  This stunning fiber is hard wearing and easy to work with, making it perfect for fancy utilitarian mitts
