FO Friday: Dreaming Of Spring Mitts

My Dreaming of Spring Fingerless Mitts are DONE!! They are too cute and I can’t wat to get them to their recipient.

Pattern: Dreaming of Spring Fingerless Mittens by Joelle Hoverson (Ravelry Link)

Yarn: Good for Ewe Claddagh in Abyss colorway

Needles: US 4s and 5s

Mods: None

They have a pretty good fit and are a bang on match to one another. They yarn is very soft and drapey. They do feel warm with the llama content in them. And I think the tweedy bits really pop against the black yarn. And I washed them in some Jasmine scented Soak so they smell lovely.

Now I just need to get over my Turkey coma and get these wrapped up to go to the recipient. Happy Knitting!!

Mitts For Teacher

I have been trying to knock out some of my smaller project I have knocking around in my WIP pile. I had cast on the Dreaming of Spring Fingerless Mitts with no real plan in mind. I have now decided that these need to be for my son’s kindergarten teacher. This has been an extra crazy year for teachers and I want to try to fix it with hand knits.

The first mitt is complete except for the thumb. And I’m well into the thumb increases on the second mitt. I think I should be able to knock this out this week especially with Thanksgiving. I think my plan is to wrap these up and stick a little note of appreciation in with them. A virtual hug in stitches.

Happy Knitting!!

Cast On: Dreaming of Spring Fingerless Mitts

I had the itch for a quick project with a tweedy yarn. And in the spirit of using stash I hopped on Ravelry and compared my pattern library to my stash and came up with a wonderful idea. A sport weight pair of fingerless mitts for my Jellybean’s Kindergarten teacher!

I picked the Dreaming of Fingerless Mittens by Joelle Hoverson (Rav link) from my book More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts. I pulled my Good for Eve Claddagh which is a sport weight tweedy black yarn with rainbow pops.

I’m working on US 4s and 5s so this is going pretty quick using my nine inch circular. I’ve already completed the cuff and started the hand portion with the thumb increases. I’m hoping to power through this and get these wrapped up by Thanksgiving. I have a Christmas checklist and I need to get going!!

Happy Knitting!!
