Fiber Arts Friday: Fingerless Mitts, part 2

I was on the road last week.  It was supposed to be time off around Thanksgiving, but since my DayJob is in IT, I did have to spend some time working. :-/  In spite of that, I made a lot of progress on my Fingerless Mitts while we were out of town.


I like small projects for traveling.... they don't take up a whole lot of space or weight... and when you're like me and detest checking bags, less is more.  :-)

I'm feeling much better about the pattern, although I did forego the lace at the top.


Now to make a second one, more-or-less the same size.  ;-)

I hope you're staying warm on this Fiber Arts Friday!

It's so nice to catch up on your blog. The alpaca mittens look so warm and comfortable, I'm sure you'll get a lot of use out of them.

The mitts are coming along nicely, I can almost feel the softness of the alpaca yarn.

I'm with Cathy, the softness of that yarn just comes right through the screen. Lurvely. :)

I like the mitts as they are. Good call on ditching the lace. They look super soft.

They look so warm and cozy! Glad you got to have a project along with you.

Very nice mitts - they look like they'd be the perfect length and thickness for me to wear to work (it's been freezing lately)!. I may have to make some like it.
