Super-quick mitts

Posted on March 30, 2010 by knittingpatterns4you | 1 Comment

I stumbled across the October Leaves Fingerless Mitts pattern and fell in love with the gusset detail. The next thing I knew I was casting on using some gorgeous Koigu from my stash in a color that makes me think of crushed berries. I should be finishing up the dozens of in-progress projects, but we all know how that goes . . .

I already finished the first mitt (even wove in the ends!) and am a few inches into the second one. The pattern isn't the clearest I've ever knit from but I figured out what was meant after re-reading a few times. The finished mitt is so adorable that it was totally worth it! Oh and the KPPPM color is P306 before anyone asks. Based on how much of the ball is left, I think I may be able to get the pair out of just one skein!

It's been cold and raining here for the last week and I'm wondering where the heck spring went! No wonder I had the sudden urge to knit myself another set of armwarmers. Just look at the fog we had yesterday:

Normally this view has the Manhattan skyline in it . . . couldn't see a single building yesterday! At least I have cheery pink mitts to brighten my day.

So pretty! I did a fingerless mitt swap with a friend, and she chose that pattern- we each knit one, and give the other yarn for the second one. I need to get around to knitting the second one, although do just wear the one from time to time. :)

Such foggy, rainy weather you’re having!
