Vilya Beret is complimented by the versatile mittens … the mittens have a flap that folds back over the top of your hand, exposing the your fingers … this is especially useful if you have a cell phone dependency! Some people are calling them "Glittens", a cross between Gloves 'n Mittens ... clever!
The Vilya Beret and Glitten set is for the more advanced knitter ... the convertible mittens present more of a knitting challenge.
Included in each kit is 1 skein of Lorna's Laces' soft new yarn, Honor (70% Baby Alpaca / 30% Silk: 275yds/100g) sport weight yarn and 1 skein of Lorna's Laces' Angel (70% Angora / 30% Lambswool: 50yds/14g) worsted weight yarn. Both kits contain the pattern and all materials needed to make each project.
Some of you have asked, "Where did you get the names for the colorwork collection?". You fans of the "Lord of the Rings" might know. It's an obscure Lord of the Rings piece of trivia … the 3 Elven rings of power, were named Nenya, Narya and Vilya … you are a real Tolkien fan if you knew that one!
Take a look at all three of my new colorwork hat and mitten projects ... they are fashionable accessories for intermediate to experienced knitters. The yarn is available in 6 wonderful color sets ... the pictures show the Vilya Beret and Glittens in the color combo we called "Lilac Tree". You'll love 'em!
