I've wanted a pair of fingerless gloves for a very long time. I wanted a pair with a thumb, which I was sure was above my skill level so I put them off. I'm a scardey cat knitter, I admit it. So much time goes into each project I hate to get half way into it and realize I don't know what I'm doing. Anyway, I took the leap and made myself these fabulous mitts!!
The pattern is Cozy Thermal Mitts, the picture is a link to the ravelry page for them. It is an excellent pattern very well written and easy to follow. The thumb I was so worried about wasn't hard to make at all. I made them out of some of my favorite Carron Simply Soft, the Mardi Grey. I love the subtle color changes and it's washable!
In the middle of making mine I saw a super cute pair for little girls that "the baby keeper" had made her little girl. I decided Ellie must have a pair too.
Now I'm thinking Levi may need a camo pair too. I'm off to see what yarn I have in my stash that may work for that.
Thanks for reading.
