Perfect for these frosty days

Started on January 5; finished yesterday:

The pattern is Cobblestone Fingerless Mitts (free on Ravelry), the yarn is Plymouth Encore Sock (two different colorways, leftovers from socks; self-patterning yarn is so FUN!). I knitted both at once using Magic Loop, and bound off with Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off. These are a gift; I think I need to make more. But for now it's back to My Fuzzy Coyote and spinning the white Gotland.

That's it for now from . . .

Beautiful! I bought a pair of these gloves in Germany and I love them. Guess I should learn how to make some myself.

This really is an easy pattern and would fit nearly anyone because of the well-designed thumb gusset and the 2x2 rib.

You do need to knit more - you need some!!

Good job on the mitts.

I have TWO pair - made for me by blogpal Adrienne - and I LOVE them!

Michelle said...

Looks like fun knitting. Think I'll check the pattern out! Thanks

Great color choice for those mitts! I really need to knit some for myself one of these days.

Fast fingerless mittens! Just the type of knitting project to have at hand. Thanks for the link to the JSSBO - I hadn't come across that and I'm getting close to casting on for some small people socks.

Thanks so much for the pattern. I really enjoy your suggestions. This pattern is exactly what I needed.

Your fingerless gloves are lovely! Such natural colors! I HAVE to learn how to do this!! I knitted as a child--- no idea how now!

Michelle said...

Glad to be of assistance, folks!

Suzan, I was in the same boat after I got sheep – learned to knit as a child but didn't remember how. I printed off Lion Brand's "How to Knit" tutorial and retaught myself. The rest is history - on this blog! :-)

I need to make some of those! My forever cold hands would love it.

Mama Pea said...

I'm with Melanie . . . love the colors in these!

Hmmm - I wonder if I could knit up a pair of these this weekend? I usually don't knit that fast and I should be working on a baby present, but the temp is supposed to be in the single digits Monday - our old farmhouse can get cold on days like that - hmmmm . . . .
