My MIL lives in New Mexico and I wanted to make her a pair of fingerless mitts for Xmas.  I spent a long time looking at Navajo and Pueblo pottery and rugs, and then tried to blend the patterns with a traditional-ish Fair Isle style.  DH helped pick the colors (6!) in Knit Picks Palette.  She took these pics for me, because I forgot to snap pictures before I gave them to her!



They're not as detailed or long as the gloves I made for myself, but I love the palms and thumb of these.



I actually knit 3 mitts... I finished the first one and decided to redesign the cuff and a few other things; DH thought I was crazy when I started over.  It's since been felted and turned into a cat toy, lol.

They are seriously, seriously lovely!!  I wish I could knit like that!  (I actually can't knit, only crochet, so I'd have a long way to go to make something as great as these mitts are!)

The patterning in these is lovely and great choice of colors. You are inspiring me to break out the bobbins again after many, many years. I'm sure she absolutely loves these...
