Handknit Week: Dashing

Monday, January 12, 2009

Welcome to Handknit week at dontcallmebecky! I’ve been knitting up lots of little projects over the past month and now’s the time to share my finished objects. Check back each day this week for another finished object.

I made these fingerless mitts to keep my hands warm in my chilly office at work. I made the men’s version of the pattern, because I liked it better than the women’s version (Fetching). Even though I made the small size, the mitts are a bit loose and long around my fingers. If I were to make this pattern again I would decrease around the top portion and knit a few less rows at the top and thumb.

The yarn I used for this project. Karabella Aurora 8 is a soft, soft, merino. It’s pretty similar to the Berocco Pure Merino in size and feel.

  5. they look so cozy.... but do your fingertips still get cold? you make me wish i was a knitter, but i do NOT need another obsession. sigh. too bad. hey, maybe someday we could arrange a swap of some kind. needlepoint for knitting? i've been thinking about trying out a needlepoint camera strap... and of course there's lots of pillows and bag options....
