Twilight Flittens

For all the silence around here, I have been getting a lot of knitting (and casting on) accomplished.  Since I keep starting new projects, the rate at which I am finishing things feels rather slow.  But I do have something to show you!

  • Pattern: New Moon Inspired Alice Cullen Fingerless Mittens by Nancy Fry, free Ravelry dowload
  • Yarn: Cascade 220 Paints in color 9848, 45 grams or about 100 yards
  • Needles: US size 8/5 mm
  • Mods: I knit one plain round after binding off for the thumb.  Then I proceeded with the ribbing, neglecting to change needles sizes. Didn’t seem to matter.

This was one of those patterns that I saw pop up on Ravelry, queued instantly, and actually went out and purchased yarn for immediately.  That rarely happens for me.  Typically, I like to mull these things over, stalk the finished projects of other knitters for yarn ideas, and then eventually knit the pattern (or not) a while later.  So this was very satisfying to discover, knit, and finish in the span of a few days.

These mitts are a little bit longer than other fingerless mitt patterns I have tried in the past.  There is sure to be no cold air sneaking up your coat sleeves when wearing these!

  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE these mitts! I also like your yarn choice. Perhaps I will be able to find some yarn and knit me up a pair before we head to the movie on Saturday. . . then again maybe not!
