Primavera mitts








Just before Christmas, while thinking about Secret Christmas knitting, I went to the Rothko: The Late Series exhibition at the Tate Modern. I had not been expecting to think of wool when in the third room, filled with large canvases from the Seagram murals. However, all the paintings were composed of shades so similar to the yarn I was using at home that it made me wonder if Sundara derives some of her inspiration from Rothko's art.

Primavera Mitts
inspired by the beautiful Primavera Socks by S(t)ockinette
Yarn: Sundara Sock Yarn, burgundy over apricot (half a skein)
Needles: 2.75 mm
I borrowed the thumb gusset pattern from Javajem's Merletto Fingerless Mitts.

Does anyone want the pattern? If so, let me know and I'll write it up.

I'm sorry, I know I've let down the Year of Pink before it's even begun. I will try harder. I did make two pairs of pink socks last year. Does that count as forward brownie points?
