Now that the weather is finally warming up around here...I finished a pair of fingerless mitts. doh! Tongue  I used the Maine Morning Mitts pattern from The Knitter's Book of Yarn. You can also get the pattern free here:

I used close to 2 skeins of Trendsetter's Tonalita in Peacock. I used size 8 needles instead of the called for size 7, and I also CO 36 instead of 33. The original pattern was a bit small. I think for the next pair I will also add on an extra stitch to the thumb as it is a bit tight, not unwearable though. I love love love this yarn and I love love love this pattern. I plan on whipping out a few more pairs as a start to my Christmas gifts.

I have only been knitting for a few months, so I am pretty proud of these. I plan on gifting them.



Here is one on, as it is impossible to take a picture of me modeling both..

These are really cute, I love the colours in the yarn.  Yay on using DPNs too, when I was a noob knitter the things scared me!
