Loopy Academy Mittens!
my mittens for Loopy Academy this past weekend. These are the Urban Necessity Gloves (there’s a link to the pattern about halfway down that page), which are actually flip top mittens. I’m knitting them in Three Irish Girls Glenhaven Cashmerino Worsted in Aileen. I plan on using them for running because on the really cold mornings I need to cover my fingers at least for the first part of the run, so I’ve been putting mittens over my fingerless gloves. Once I’m warmed up and going, I usually take off the mittens, but then I have to carry them. This way, I can just pop the tops off the mittens and keep running. Since the yarn is super wash, I can toss them in to wash when they need it. (That’s an important feature for running gear!)
