Raccoons

I thought I was running late with this pair of fingerless mittens and a cowl but considering the weather we've had recently, they might get some wear before autumn :)



Pattern: Great Weekend Mitts by Thea Eschliman
Yarn: Troitsk Yarn Deluxe (red and white) and Troitsk Yarn Moscow Chic (grey)
Needles: 2.5 mm



I improvised the pattern for the cowl but I admit I was initially inspired by Veronik Avery's Redwork Cowl.

  1. Dopada mi se kombinacija boja, ali iz razloga koji neću ponavljati (jer sigurno znaš o čemu je riječ), nikako to ne bih mogla nositi ;-)

  4. Oh, I love it! The colour combination is a dream and the button band looks fantastic. You'll really enjoy wearing these even if you do have to wait till autumn to do it ;^)

  8. @ Roman Tales: ;DDD

    @ it came so naturally I wasn't even thinking about giving them a different name :)

    @ Kahlan: Thanks! You may not be much of a knitter but your embroidery is stunning!

    @ milanarukotvorine: Hvala! :)

    @ Mary Keenan: Thanks! I saw a couple of projects on Ravelry with a similar colour combo and immediately liked it. The good thing is I had this yarn in stash ;)

    @ drenka: i ja tako pretpostavljam ;) i ja sam mislila da je kasno, al' vidi kako je hladno!

    @ Csilla: hehehe, I wish I had that power in July! :)

    @ magrit: meni se baš taj kontrast dopada, a i zbog te crvene će mi dobro ići uz crvenu prolećnu jaknu :)

  9. Uh... izgubio mi se komentar u bespućima blogosfere. Kako bilo, malo kasnim s komentarom, ali ne mogu ne komentirati.
    Sjajna kombinacija, izvrstan akcent mornarskog uzorka ovim crvenim dijelom... ma, usprkos gumbića, koje ne volim baš kao ni romantales, ovo bih mogla nositi!!
