Anyhow, the nice thing about being homebound is I get to knit and fool around with yarn to my heart's content. I just took pictures of these cozy mitts I made for my potter friend, Jean. They are a gift for her 60th birthday last month. I had one done when I went to her birthday dinner so at least she got to see her present on her birthday! I was in the middle of painting my living room and my knitting time was seriously diminished by that project. Anyhow I've got them done but I can't get them to Jean this week because all our plans have been cancelled by the snowy, icy, very cold weather.
I knit up these generic mitts (I used a mitten pattern for the basic shape and and changed it to please myself) with Classic Elite Moorland in tawny birch and some left over Paca-Peds in fireside as an accent on the ribbing. I used the Moorland for my friend, Sally's, neckwarmer and I loved it so here it is again. The Paca-Peds if left over from, the now famous in certain circles, Mikey's sox.
Fingerless mitts are one of those things I just didn't get until I had a pair of my own. Sometimes you want to warm your hands a bit and keep your fingers available. These little mitts are the perfect way to keep busy fingers free.
