Here is the first Orchid Mitt....hot off the needles. I used much heavier yarn, Socks that Rock medium wieght - Foo Foo. I knit the cuff on 3s and switched to 2s for the lace pattern so it would flare out a bit. I also moved the thumb back over so I could see the lace when it was on my hand....I think I'll move it a few stitches more on the next glove. I also cut out a few rows of the top motif and out of the thumb to make up for the heavier yarn. I'm pretty happy with it so far. I'll probably crochet around the bottom...maybe the top too. I sell my soap at Farmer's Markets and winter is pretty brutal...even in California. Fingerless gloves are just the thing, as I can still count money....Oh yeah....this is my first ever blog post too!
