The Wild West: Stranded — Organ Pipe Mitts

SUNSET CAT-49I 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.
