Last week I mentioned a new mitten kit in passing.  Today I have a full report.

Pinstripe Double Knit Mittens Kit.

Stripes on the top.

Stripes on the bottom.  Stripes all around.

This design uses double knitting - a clever technique that creates a two-sided fabric.  Double knitting has the potential for all sorts of colorwork options.

And it's reversible.  This kit uses Dirty Water DyeWorks Bertha, a blend of Superwash Merino, Cashmere and Nylon.  Bertha makes a cozy, luxurious mitten.

The Pinstripe design includes two cuff options.

This is the gauntlet option.  The other choice is a traditional ribbed cuff.

You can find the Pinstripe Double Knit Mittens Kit here.  Scroll down a bit for the mittens.

This kit provides an opportunity to learn a new technique and is available in three different color combinations.

Every fall I'm amazed and entertained with the color transformation from green to reds, yellows and browns.  The full fall spectrum is represented here in my color inspiration for the week.

Lingering leaves.
