Back To Regularly Scheduled Knitting

A few days ago, before the nonsense of sock wars took over my life (causing me to spend a weekend knitting a pair of death socks), I went to a wonderful evening of amateur musical theater.  As usual, I had several balls of yarn in my knitting bag purse, and I was planning to rid myself of knitting withdrawl.

Have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE knitting with bulky yarn??  This project was almost done by the end of the evening!

These mittens came together really quickly.  But…they are more than just mittens…

They are also fingerless gloves!!

The mitten top folds back neatly so fingers can write, type, text, or play the piano.

I made up the pattern as I went along, following what the yarn seemed to want to become.  I need to make the other one soon before I forget what I did.  I will write up my pattern and post it shortly, so you can make your own cozy pair.

RED MITTEN NEWS:  Today the 120th red mitten pattern was sold bringing us to $600 raised for the Penguins Can Fly swim team for disabled children.  Thanks to everyone who has bought this pattern and supported these deserving athletes.

SOCKWARS NEWS:  My death socks have been mailed to Florida, and as of today I’ve received no death socks in the mail.  Fingers crossed!!
