These colorwork fingerless mitts were completely inspired by this beautiful yarn dyed by Nina of Brujeria Lana. The warm, golden rainbow of the Candy Rain colorway reminds me of candy covered gingerbread houses and faded polaroids. I designed the colorwork motifs with that feeling in mind. These mitts are a fun and quick knit with an eye catching design.
