Ever since moving to the North East we have taken to spending some time by the Cheviots in Northumberland. If you've not been to Northumberland, it is gorgeous and quite, being the least densely populated county in England, with a varying landscape where you'll have moors and hills and rivers aplenty. There are of course cities and towns to visit, although we tend to stick to the open country and paths around the Cheviots and walk. Because you get to see this
and say hello to the passers by if you're feeling brave
Cheviot Hills is that little piece of Northumberland that has a special place in my heart, with it's spectacular views and the quiet of the country, the rolling hills that are darted with paths and trails. And it is that, that I wanted to translate into a twist motif of a cable, a bold yet quite design, a path that catches your eye with nothing else to distract you.
Letting the single twists of cables in these mitts bring together knit and purl textures much like the Cheviot Hills' valleys bridge the fields.
The mitts are knitted with Mirasol Tuhu, a very soft yarn that shows the texture of knits and purls and the cables so well. They are sized up from 4¾" to fit a wee little hand to 6¾", intended to be worn with a little bit of a negative ease.
