I still have a FO or two from ’09 to show you but instead today I’m showing off my first FO of 10. They are the pair of Susie’s Reading Mitts that were supposed to be a Christmas present, but I definitely blew the deadline. It’s okay, though, because I haven’t seen the recipient yet so she will be none the wiser. Heh.
If you are looking for a very simple and very quick fingerless mitt pattern this is THE one. The lace cuff is pretty and easy to do and the picot edge makes a beautiful feminine accent to the design.
The yarn is Karabella Boise and it’s quite yummy. The cashmere gives the mitts a nice fuzz and they are so soft! I knit the small size and they are definitely narrow but they fit Hannah perfectly (I had to practically pry them off and I may have even promised to make her a pair) so I know they will fit the recipient who also has small hands.
I might even have to make a pair of these for myself.
