New Fingerless Mittens


When fingerless mittens became fashionable I wondered why anyone would want to wear them.

Fast forward to cold hands watching TV in the evening!

I got it and proceeded to find a pattern.

This is the second pair I knit.

They are my favorite as they are snug but not tight.

They are also my current favorite color.

Of course they are 100% wool sock yarn and just plain feel good too.

I am sure they will be getting a lot of use this season.

In addition to all that I really enjoyed knitting them and I’m glad I chose the simplest pattern as I think they will be warmer and also allow me to manipulate my hands to do whatever one does when they are sitting watching TV!

Addendum: Several people have asked what pattern I used.

I found it on Ravelry. It is the Fingerless Mitts by Ann Dobedoe.

I just had an email from Simply Maggie on making this really cue cowl! Check it out...only two skeins...

I might just have to run to JoAnn's! You've got me in the mood to knit again! Like I need another project!

Love the color too. What pattern did you use? I have some mittens on my "to do" list for this winter too.

I, too, love the color of your mitts. I'd like to know what the pattern is, too. I'm right there with you with the cold hands in the house!

Thank you for posting the pattern, Kay!
