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!
