FO: Two Pairs of Fingerless Mittens

A fellow childminder and a good friend ordered two pairs of fingerless mittens from me last year, one pair in the Spring and the other in the Autumn.

The first pair I knitted back in May 2014, using this DROPS Design pattern. I have knitted them before and posted about here.

The pattern called for DROPS Alpaca and DROPS Kid-Silk, which make the mittens scrumptiously soft.

My friend has started a ‘Forest School’ nursery in the woods with a friend close to us and so these are probably a great accessory to have.

LS 6

I knitted these up in a couple of days, and even though the pattern on them looks quite intricate it is actually really easy. In fact, I’ve just recently knitted two projects with exactly this pattern and I love it!

LS 7

It’s funny actually, I’ve knitted other people fingerless mittens, but have never actually knitted myself a pair.

LS 8

I modelled them myself in Spring of 2014 ūüôā

LS 9

The second pair is also a DROPS Design pattern, but it’s actually a pair of wrist warmers.

I had also knit these wrist warmers before for a friend and when I posted about them on my blog, my friend liked them so much she ordered a pair, but as wrist warmers.

This is also a great pattern, that took a little longer to knit up as it calls for 3mm size needles.

LS 14

My friend picked the same colour as the previous ones I knitted, and it’s a lovely colour.

This is another pair of fingerless mittens that I really should knit for myself too!

FO: Fingerless Mittens

Earlier in the year I made two pairs of fingerless mittens from two of my very good friends, they both had birthdays in January/February. Here I am posting about the first pair.

Of course I am Mrs. Predictable, and I used a DROPS pattern, but this one is one I’ve not knitted before. And I loved it, it calls for DROPS Alpaca and DROPS Kid-Silk, which meant the finished mittens were sturdy but really, really soft and smooth.

I picked some colours that I knew my friend would like and to be honest the pictures don’t really show them. I used a very light green and an off white.

BH 2

The pattern itself was great it was just the repetition of one little pattern and it worked a treat.

And for some action shots I roped in my husband who managed to get some amazing shots when the sun was streaming through our window into the dining room.

FO: Fingerless Mittens

These fingerless mittens were put on order from a good friend of mine. They’ve been in my¬† queue for the last two weeks and I’m glad to have finished them, I popped them in the post today.

I know I’m¬†predictable, but it is indeed another DROPS pattern.¬†Just an easy garter stitch rectangle that gets stitched together with a hole for the thumb and then an added crochet border on both sides.

The pattern called for DROPS Alpaca and DROPS Glitter, which adds a lovely chic detail.
