Included as part of Point/Counterpoint Volume 4. Two designers + two yarns = inspiration through collaboration. Each designer independently created an accessory, then sent only a photo of the finished object to the other. In response, the designers used the same yarn to create a new accessory inspired by the first, thus making a set. The only limit is their creativity!

The Mothy and the Squid miniskein set used for these mitts was a luxury of riches – how to design an accessory that showed off the fully glory of the color range and still give knitters a chance to play in the process? As if the colors weren’t enough, I decided to “go big or go home” and make these fully elbow-length. There’s nothing shy or boring about these mitts, and I envision them serving as a powerful uniform for anyone who needs motivation to get things done or face what’s coming. Be bold. Be colorful. Be relentless.
