Twined Knitting

011  Mitts from my class with Beth Brown-Reinsel.  I always enjoy taking classes with Beth.  She talks about the history of this type of knitting and brings plenty of pictures and, of course, lovely garments to pass out.

These were knit using both ends of the yarn making them extremely thick and warm.  A little too warm to get much use around here, but they will be great for cool knitting evenings.  There is enough of my fingers and thumb showing to knit decently.  I was thinking about turning these into mittens before I realized that I would get more use from them as they are.
