I think I've said this before, but it bears repeating: Who doesn't love a little red mitten?
For grown ups, though, mittens are often inconvenient. That's why I designed this ultra-cozy pair of fingerless gloves that don't always have to be fingerless.
I've made three pair: Two in red and one in green, all using Dale of Norway Sisik (now discontinued), a tweedy, fluffy yarn with all the warmth of mohair.
You can wear these gloves three ways:
1) With both cuffs up, pictured above
2) With the finger-cuff up, like this...
3) With both cuffs unfurled, to keep your fingers toasty:
They're so simple to make -- an easy, fun knit with worsted-weight yarn on US#3 needles for a nice, dense fabric. Having made three pair this year, however, I think I'll take a little break and make something else.
Perhaps a shawl? I'm in the mood for a little lace and some shiny beads...kinda like this one, but different:
So I'm going to wind this little baby into a nice, neat yarn cake (thus combining two of my favorite things!) and see what I come up with...
Ssshhh...Don't tell anyone, though. It's going to be a secret ;-)
