Mum’s alpaca knit mittens

Mum's alpaca knit mittensIn the pre-holiday rush I forgot to post about these mittens I made for my mum for an upcoming winter adventure.

This was my second time using Morris and Son’s Maya baby alpaca yarn¬†and I love love love it. So soft and warm, perfect for mittens.

I combined a few different stitch patterns to create a light texture for the top of the hand. It was an experiment which I’m mostly happy with but I’d make a few minor changes if I made these again.

Most importantly, mum was super thrilled :) And she loved her cable along socks.
