Flower Bud Mitts with buds and leaves
sold 2011, USA
Buds of pink gorgeousness – I can think of peonies with their big, plump round ones or tiny pink primrose nubs of petals all furled up and ready to burst open. The joy of new life and pretty colors quietly appearing in the garden, nurtured by morning sunshine that gets stronger and warmer every day.
Inner Wild Flower Bud Cuffs are knitted with mercerised cotton which has a slight sheen to it that accentuates the knitted stitches and gives them definition. I i-cord knitted natural mint green leaves and darling rose pink flower buds in a cashmere and cotton mix yarn.
These Flower Bud Cuffs are finished with lace knitting at the wrists and knuckles, oh so lady-like. For some reason these Flower Bud Cuffs remind me of Beatrix Potter and names like Beatrice and Alice, Florence and Gudrun.
