6/9 Red dip mittens

Yarn: Three ply white wool yarn from Ullcentrum Öland ullgarn dyed with madder after knitting. Needle size 2.5 mm.

Sometimes one just want to make something really simple. I had been knitting so much with two colours, and thinking so much about floats and construction problems that I really longed for making a simple one colour mitten. I choose a three ply yarn so the mittens would not be so thin. After knitting, I dyed them with madder – a small experiment with dyeing a ready made garment. It took two dips to make the colour really even. They really are crazy red and I love them!
