My Beacon Hill Mittens have just been released on Ravelry this afternoon, and I am stoked to share this one with the knitting world. The texture is so lovely! This photo was taken on the Boston Tea Party Harbor, in case you were wondering. If you look at my KUAS Podcasts: Episode 10, there's a slideshow of Boston at the end.

This pattern was inspired by a 19th century Boston Gilded Age mystery series by P.B Ryan that I absolutely adore.

It was such a pleasure knitting this up in Malabrigo Rios yarn. It was was so smooth and buttery, compared to the wool I have been knitting with lately.
Here's size large. I plan on lining this with fleece, as it's very spacious.
