Mitts and more Mitts

Posted by 2ton Inspired on February 8, 2008

My mom has requested another pair of fingerless gloves. While she likes the fair isle of the last pair the yarn gets caught in her rings and bracelets. She wanted to buy the yarn for the next pair and I wasn’t going to say no. Hehee.

The yarn is Lion Brand Suede and it’s a bit thicker then most fingerless gloves patterns but I think I’ve found one that will work – SuperQuick Fingerless Mitts from Spindle and Wheel. Since I don’t have dpn’s in the right size and magic loop doesn’t work well for me on small projects like gloves/mittens I’m doing them on straight. I hope they fit! I get the feeling that the CO is a bit too tight, but I used size 10.5 needles to cast on. I’m only about 2 inches in so time will tell.

I really wanted to do something with a pretty cable pattern (Evangeline from MagKnits or Twisted Maiden from Magic Fingers) but the yarn isn’t agreeable. Maybe next time and maybe for me….
