I really wanted to play with texture with the Organ Pipe mitts, evoking the ridges and spines of the cactus with the garter stitch ribbing of the green columns.
I love working with Elemental Affect shetland. The colors are so rich!
The strong vertical lines of the ribbing directly mirror the shape of the Organ Pipe cactus.
