Just in time for Valentine’s Day…

The Truffle Mitts!

Pattern: Truffle by Samantha Roshak
Yarn: Hazel Knits Artisan Sock in Chocoberry
Started: 12/30/11
Finished: 1/30/12

I got this kit in October 2010 at the Hazel Knits trunk show at The Fiber Gallery. I was drawn to the color, even though it’s not really my typical favorite. (I think everyone loves this color!)

I finally got around to knitting them after wishing I had something to keep my hands warm but leave my fingertips free for iPhone swiping. I modified the pattern a bit to have the full cable section at the top of the hand (instead of the truncated version specified on the pattern), which also increased the length a bit. Other than that, I knit it as written.

Next time I think I’d make the palms in stockinette, both because I’m not so fond of ribbing and also because they’re a little snug.
