Ursula Mittens

Another completed project from Kate Davies's book, The Colours of Shetland.

The pattern is called Ursula mittens.  The mittens are a lovely snug fit, but I would have preferred a longer cuff.  Also the thumb would have been better if it was more fitted.  Details of the yarn etc I used can be found, as always, on my Ravelry page, here.

I'm satisfied with the mittens but not madly in love with them.  They'll keep me warm this winter and I'm happy with the lovely Autumnal colour combination.

Now I'm off to cast on for Kate Davies's Scatness Tam - I do love her hat patterns so I am anticipating a less muted response to this project.


  1. Those are just beautiful! I have been eyeing out lots of Fair Isle at the moment - once my Christmas projects are under control I think I will give it a go. You should link up with Yarn Along each Wednesday - you have such beautiful work I'm sure other Yarn Alongers would love to see it!


  2. What lovely mittens. Funnily I'm working on some at the moment too.


Thank you for visiting Yellow Pink and Sparkly. I'd love to hear from you, so please feel free to leave a comment.
