Metolius – the River and the Mitt

This week my sisters and I took a short jaunt to the Metolius River.  It is a stunning, beautiful river.  We were surprised at the volume of water rushing by, and the fall colors were glorious.  I can’t wait to go back sometime and explore the area more fully.

The surrounding area was quiet and peaceful.  It would be a great place to knit!  Not to mention fish, bike, hike, read…


I love how the sunlight filters through the water.

And these are the Metolius River Mitts:

They are so named as this colorway with its beautiful blues, greens, ginger, gold and browns made me think of sunlight filtering through water to the river rock below:

Finally, here they are worked in yet another colorway, Rusted.  This picture was taken before the thumb was completed.

This pattern is one of my favorites because it looks great in a variety of sock yarns and works up quickly on size 5 needles.  If you are looking for a pattern for a special skein of sock yarn, this could be it.

Thanks for joining me in this look at the Metolius – the river and the mitts!


In this blog, you will find not only an exploration of all that is good in our knitterly lives, but also a variety of posts tying together my passions for writing, photography, and my home state of Oregon.
