Finished Object: Fingerless Mittens

These fingerless mittens I made in January 2014 for a friend of mine who always had cold fingers. They were a quick and straightforward knit, using a Drops Design pattern.

I used some DROPS Merino Extra Fine in Navy blue, stunning yarn for all kinds of projects. I particularly like using it for baby knits. Despite a somewhat lacy pattern, this is a very quick knit…it might have something to do with the 3.5mm needles?

I used to love wearing fingerless mittens especially when knitting. But I haven’t had much use for them here in Australia ;-).

FO: Wrist Warmers

For Christmas last year I made my mum some wrist warmers. cg-32

My mum easily gets cold, especially where she lives now in a huge 24 bedroom villa. So these were the perfect gift for her.

They are a very simple DROPS Design pattern, but with a very pretty finish.

My mum loves them and she tells me that she wears them all the time. Made even more special by the fact that they are a constant reminder that I am thinking of her no matter how far away I am.
