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.

LS 5

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: Mittens

I want to write a very quick post today as I am out this evening. In December 2013 a mummy friend ordered mittens with a string for her husband’s colleague who was visiting from the US.

UA 1

I used this DROPS Design pattern, which knit up really quickly in just a day.

UA 2

I can’t actually remember what yarn I used, but I do know that I doubled the yarn to make the mittens warmer.

UA 3For the string I even knit an i-cord…I didn’t even do that for Luke’s mittens :-).
