One of my favorite things about the cold winter weather is having to bundle up before you go outside. Hats, scarves and, mittens are not only necessary, but a great way to show your style, transform an otherwise bland coat, and pull together your outfit. While I don’t know how to knit, I’ve always admired the time and care that knitters put into what they make, objects that offer warmth and comfort.
These three cable mittens by LadyOverboard09 have a classic design and will match with any winter coat. The blue and black specks in the yarn add just a dash of color without taking away from the handiwork or the design. Made of 100 percent Merino wool, these gloves are sure to keep your hands warm on the coldest winter night.
These fushia mittens by Beaded Wire are a perfect way to add a punch of color to your winter coat and are bright enough to combat any gray winter day. Made of Lopi Icelandic wool and featuring a large cable knit down the middle, these gloves make a bold statement.
I love the playful design of these thrummed mittens by Lindfield Farm. Set against a navy blue background, these patterned gloves feature small white hearts all the way around. What better way to spread some love during the cold winter months? Made of 100 percent wool, these gloves are made by inserting unspun fiber through the knitting pattern to make a soft interior that will keep your hands extra warm.
I don’t have any warm clothes with me in Honolulu so my parents always bring some along with them to the airport when they pick me up. As an early birthday or Christmas gift, I may have to pass along a link to one of these gorgeous pairs of gloves and hope that they are waiting for me when I arrive in Chicago!
