These are not mittens but "fingerless gloves or mitts" or also known as "wrist warmers" ... they are quick and very popular with friends & family on my guest list this year. At least with me they are. Every time some one sees me knitting one they say, "Gee, I hope I'm getting a pair of those also." Well I try not to disappoint them ... so I'm working on these two styles ...
Here are six more completed pair. Well the grey heathered set in the front isn't done in the picture, but believe me, this weekend they were completed also. I now have about nine (9) more pair to go. WHAT.you.say?
Yup, I can get one hand completed if I work on it in the morning for about 1 hour and on the train for 45 minutes, 30 minutes during lunch, and again for a 45 minute ride home on the train and then with the last 5 rows up to the finish while watching TV. So that nine pair will take another 18 days, right? Well maybe less or maybe a little more. Depending on the rest of my life getting in the way right?
So for your enjoyment, here's some close up pictures of what the mitts look like ... oh BTW, the cable ones are from Knitty.com called Fetching.
The other style is from Favorite Mittens: Best Traditional Patterns. I love this one for it's simplicity, good looks and easy knit. Perfect for the guys in your life too. Use the right yarn and either mittens OR gloves will fit right over it also. And the best part is that there's no right or left glove. They go on either hand. These are GREAT fingerless mitts.
Oh ya, I do have a pair of mittens to knit for November ... on the needles right now. For one of my granddaughters. Well I plan to knit three pair of mittens for granddaughters. I better start those soon ... November is almost over.
Thanksgiving will be up in New Hampshire this year. So that day will be knit free. (Can you BELiEVE that?) But I do have a few days off from work also and I'm NOt going out shopping if I can help it.
I'll be home knitting.
