Finished Knit: Fuchsia Colorwork Mittens

Thursday, February 1, 2024

Happy Thursday! I have a finished knit to share today, my colorwork mittens!

I started these mittens in December 2021, so they've been a long time coming! I really don't know why it took me so long to get them done. They're unlined, and I love knitting colorwork! The pattern is Emma's Ice Flower Mittens.

I knit most of the second mitten in January of this year. I started knitting just a couple rows every morning after I finished eating my breakfast, and before I knew it, they were done! Such a good reminder for myself that small incremental progress can add up. That's the only kind of making I can manage at the moment, with my crafty time being so fragmented.

Despite how long it took me to get these done, I really like them. I love how long the cuff is, and the colorwork was very pleasant. I did struggle a bit on the first mitten when it came to picking up the thumb stitches, but I was really over thinking it. The second thumb was way easier.

This fuchsia yarn by Duck Duck Wool was a dream to knit with. It's so soft and smooth. I'm glad I finally used it in a project, the color is so fun! The cream is an undyed skein of worsted.

I carried this project around in one of my favorite drawstring project bags that I've ever made! This was made with scraps from my Fantastic Leftovers Quilt. I really should make some more scrappy bags, I always love how they turned out! This is the project size from my Lined Drawstring Bag Pattern.

If you're interested, you can find this project on my Ravelry here.

Happy Knitting!


  1. These turned out so pretty and I love that you found a way to get them done - just two rows after breakfast every day! Whatever works, right?

  2. Those are lovely but I call them pawkies - a link to Scots Dictionary:

  3. These are gorgeous! I love the colour choice; so happy!

  4. They turned out lovely! I always shake my head when I quickly plough through a project by committing to a few rows each, why can't I figure out how to do that with every project?!?! My current WIP is being toted around in a bag I made from one of your patterns and I didn't even realize it until I read this post! They really do make great knitting bags!

  5. These turned out so great! Love the colors. I made a project bag with your pattern too. It carries my knitting also. Great idea!
