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!
