Hi all! I've been meaning to introduce myself and share a finished pair of fingerless mitts, but haven't had a chance until now. I'm Rachel, and I blog over here. I'm a knitter and a spinner, so when Keri announced this knitalong, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to use up some of my handspun for something useful. Besides, the weather in my part of the world is already quite chilly, so these mitts have come in handy. Actually, I'm wearing them as I type this post! :)
Pattern: My own
Yarn: my handspun Shetland wool, roving dyed by Amy of Spunky Eclectic
Needles: 4.5mm Addi circulars
I made up the pattern as I went along, simply by multiplying my hand measurement by my gauge. I tried the mitts on as I knit, to determine where to start my gusset increases and where to cast off. I just used a simple 2x2 ribbing on the edges. The mitts aren't spectacular, but they are functional, albeit a bit on the bulky side. At some point, I'd love to knit a pair of Endpaper mitts.
I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else knits!
