Ubiquitous Fetching

Just like everyone else...I love Fetching. They are so easy and quick. All the recipients love them as well.

Waffle Mitts

These are Waffle Mitts. I found that they match the Thermis neckwarmers I made last year. Now this is my matching, go-to pattern for the mitts.

Angora Glaistig

My youngest granddaughter fell in love with the pair I made last Fall. These will be her Christmas gift this year. I am having problems finding appropriate buckles and they still need to be assembled. Who knew something so simple could be so hard to find.

FingerlessMittens for my Grandma

Here is my 93 year old Grandma enjoying her first pair of fingerless mittens. My Aunt saw a picture of another pair I had made and e mailed me to make a pair for Grandma. Her hands are always cold and she loves to do crossword puzzles. Now her hands will be toasty in these mittens in her favorite color. I used the Fetching pattern and Simply Soft yarn so she can wash them when they get dirty.

Tutti Fruiti Fingerless Mittens

I used the Potluck Mittenette pattern and some left over yarn and whipped up these soft and fun mittens.

Marvelous Mitts

This pattern is called Marvelous Mitts by Karen Neal. I was really happy with the way they turned out. I used Cherry Tree Hill Supersock yarn in the Country Garden colorway, solid black Koigu KPM sock yarn and 2.25 mm needles.
The right mitt is according to the pattern (I did add more corrugated rib at the wrist and before the BO). The left mitt I made some stranded design changes that I thought worked better with the busy varigated pattern yarn. So these mitts are fraternal, not identical.

Kristy's gloves

My friend Kristy wanted a pair of these fingerless mittens for her Mom's birthday. I used Cameo by Yarn Bee and the Potluck Wool Mittenettes Pattern. They knitted up fast and easy and this yarn is so soft...I almost wish they were for me!

Overdue Evangeline

I can't believe that I forgot to post these. I completed them back in August and they have been just perfect for the cool Fall and this bitterly cold Winter!

This is the only decent photo I have of them and I did eventually finish the thumb gussett. I used Renaissance Yarn on size 7 dpns for my narrow hands and wrists. This project really whipped up quick and I'm not the fastest knitter but I managed to complete these in about 10 days! All other details can be found on Ravelry.

Good N Plenty

Well, here is one of two fingerless mittens I am knitting using the Fetching pattern. I decided I needed them to match a shrug I knit a while back.
This yarn reminds me of Good N Plenty candy, one of my favorites!

Hi there,

Nice meeting you ladies (guys ?), how are you. I m a newbie in this KAL. In order not to have different tension/size of the mitten/glove using dpns, i would like to knit them on a circular needle 2 @ 1 time, does anyone has a good suggestion or has anyone done it before ? Any advice is welcome. Thank you and happy knitting........jackie
