Hello beautiful fiber lovers,
I am thrilled to be partnered with Erica Heusser on a kit release for her new pattern, Varia Mitts! The Varia Mitts are exquisitely designed and like all of Sweater Sisters’ kits, are test knitted and professionally tech edited.
The mitts are knit bottom up in the round and start with a delicate jewel-like Fair Isle pattern. I love the back of the hand which features a rich outline of an owl settled in on a branch with the silvery background. The palm features a lovely Fair Isle pattern that evokes the look of individual feathers.
Erica used my Wayfarer fingering base (80% extra fine Superwash Merino/10% Cashmere/10% nylon) in Salem (rich bronze), Sanibel Island (silver grey) and Blue Hosta (blue and gold). I have kits available in these colors as well as two additional color sets; Lily of the Valley (deep olive green), Aspen (flecked gold), Sanibel Island and Catoctin (deep russet), Miami (coral, gold and silver) and Sanibel Island.
Each kit is $37 and comes with a 50g skein of the main color and two 25g skeins, one for each of the contrasting colors, and a download code for the Varia Mitts pattern by Erica Heusser.
The pattern releases on Saturday, 2/20, but the kits are available now up on the website!
WayfaringYarns is Sweater Sisters’ in house hand-dyed yarn line dyed by Selena in Teton Valley, Wyoming.
Stay safe and have loads of fiber fun, my friends!
