Quick to knit winter warmers. These mitts are something a little bit special – the symmetrical lace patterns look super complicated, but are actually very straightforward. They knit up fast in beautiful hand-dyed yarn, making them great gifting material for a knitworthy friend – or a well-deserved treat for yourself! Dalgety Bay is a little town on the Fife coast in Scotland, with beautiful views of the famous Forth Road Bridge. There’s stunning walks along the Fife coastal path, but with the wind whipping off the North Sea your hands will definitely need a little something extra to keep them toasty!
