One Skein Mitts

I just recently joined this KAL and have a pair of mitts to share. I made these for a friend who just recently lost her father to cancer. I figured if I can't hold her hand literally, I'll have to do so figuratively with some warm mitts.

I used less than one skein of Cascade 220 Heathers, and the pattern is called Unisex Gloves from One Skein by Leigh Radford. I made them tipless to be sure that they would fit her. I know they are not exactly fingerless, but I thought y'all would throw me a bone!

Up next, a pair of Dashings for a friend with really cold hands, and then maybe I get a pair of mitts for myself!

I blog over at Crossroad Knits, by the way.

That is SO endearing of you to knit up this mitts for her since you can't hold her hand!! I just melted when you said that!! I hope you put that in a card too!!!

Love them! Makes me want to go get that book...yep I think I am the last knitter on this earth that doesn't own that book! LOL

Can't wait to see your dashing too!
