I finally finished my tardis mitts; pattern by Spilly Jane! It only took 5 months or so, give or take a week or two. Babies are exhausting (but I love him). Anyway, I used knitpicks fingering wool yarn for these. I didn't want mine to match what everyone else has created, so I used the tardis color for the background and a mint green for the actual box. I love the effect!
The pattern has a 1v1 stitch on the back, and I didn't like how it looked so I changed it to a 2v2. I also drastically lengthened the wrist portion. This girl likes her wrists well covered in winter.
The actual colorwork part is really straightforward. I added a thumb gusset as well--I think it just made for a much more functional and comfortable glove.
I can't tell you how much I LOVE these mitts! Dr. Who fans, unite!
