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!
