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.
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.
