I worked all month long to complete 3 pairs of fingerless mittens done in four colors, 2 large areas of color, along with somewhat contrasting colored cast-ons. I'm pleased with the resulting mitts, they fit a number of random hands very well, the colors are fun and unusual and they really do keep you warm. I used Mason-Dixon's Squad Mitts for my color inspiration and your excellent Mitten Pattern for my mitten design basis. I used sport weight yarn and size 3 needles (to get a tight fabric). I have a cryptic pattern, literally written on the back of an old envelope!
Dear friends of mine co-operated in being my hand models and there were several great ideas for photographing the mitts. I do think the card game is fun, however; I suspect there was something wrong with this deal...
But hear no evil, see no evil and speak no evil is my all-time favorite!
I gave a pair of the mitts to a girl friend who sits by a window at work and is cold in the winter. I got this picture this morning. Nice to see our hand-knits hard at work.
