I finished all but one mitt at the beach last week. These are my Fetchings knit from some stashed Louisa Harding Kashmir. They are pretty; the microfiber makes them shine. But do you see how Miss Lear's stashed Alchemy Reservoir - a wool/mohair single - puts them to shame when knit up into the simple ribbed Maine Morning Mitts? They soak up the beach sun and warm your hands.
