I have a fun new version of the Barrett Wool Co. Bulky Twist Mitten Kit to share with you today!
You can purchase the kit with or without the Waiting for Winter Bulky Mitten pattern if you already have the pattern. You can make matching mittens or mix it up!
Over on Barrett Wool Co. the kits are housed in the Pattern section on the menu for now in case you are looking. We will be doing some rearranging soon to have a separate section for the kits on the menu.
Also, our Home Collection Yarns in both fingering weight and worsted weight will be fully stocked again in a few short weeks! We are so excited and we have some wonderful plans in store.
Here is some information about the kit and pattern you might like to know:
Here are a bunch of samples I made up with the three Bulky Twist colors of our Wisconsin Woolen Spun yarn. The kit provides enough yarn to make 2-3 pairs of mittens depending on the size from the pattern.
These are all worked up in the medium size and each individual mitten weighs 24 grams. The kit will give you over 150 grams of Bulky Twist in total to knit up any way you choose.
It's a lot of fun to figure out how you make to make your pair of mittens!
The Bulky Twist yarn is so much fun to knit. It is light and airy and the fabric is deliciously marled!
On another note, the #dailyknitsocks hashtag over on Instagram is so much fun. If you are on Instagram and you wear knit socks feel free to join in. There are no rules. You can post as much or as little as you like. It's been so great to be able to see so many knitters wearing their sock. I love it.
The socks are knit in an old and I believe discontinued yarn, Schoeller+Stahl Fortissima Socka, Color 9076
The clogs are the El Naturalista brand.
I'll be back soon with more. I have a fun colorwork hat pattern coming out hopefully very soon. I also am traveling to Austin, Texas next week for the Hill Country Weavers Retreat. I am really looking forward to teaching in Texas again. There are fantastic and enthusiastic knitters in Texas and it's always a treat.
