Yes, I jumped on the fingerless mittens bandwagon today.
Even though this is my first attempt at something like this, I realized that it really isn’t that hard…I should probably try full mittens or gloves. But I have a feeling gloves would require a lot of kitchener stitch, which, quite frankly, I don’t do very well. (Don’t look at the toes of those baby socks too closely, Marisa!)
These will be for my acupuncturist, Melissa, whether she wants them or not. She has such a wonderful soul, and I want to thank her for bringing some pain relief, better sleep and relaxation to my life. She is traveling to Nepal next month to participate in a World Healing Exchange, working with locals and Tibetan refugees. I was trying to think of something that might be useful for her in the mountains there. I will tell her if she doesn’t want them then she should give them to someone in Nepal who might need something of that sort.
The pattern is called Yak’s Fingerless Mitts (fitting, perhaps). I used Lion Brand Homespun, colorway Edwardian.
