these were an easy, quick, knit (just the way i like it!) instant gratification and warm hands, with fingers free for typing, writing or...knitting!
i used a wool blend worsted weight yarn in this heather/burgundy color. very comfy!

from a pattern on this site:
http://www.oknitting.com/freesamples.htm
called "A Warmer World: Fingerless Mitts"

(the color is kinda weird on some of these pics, but its very close to the first and last picture-color.)







i really like them for this 'in-between' weather, sometimes spring-y, and other times not-so-much-so.

These are so cute! Thanks for posting the link to the pattern.
I especially love the instant gratification knitting and could use something for this inbetween-y weather too!

Hey! I really like yours! I just finished one fingerless mitt today too. (the second is on the needles)



I dyed the yarn with kool aid, and the pattern is from knitty.com - the Voodoo Wristwarmers (but shorter because I don't know if I dyed enough yarn to do the full length. Wink

I made a skein first by wrapping the yarn around the back of a chair (It's Lion Brand Fishermen's Wool). I made several cups of different colors of Kool Aid (next time I'd make them more saturated). Then I put the yarn down on some plastic wrap on a table and poured the different colors over it in random stripes. (Some bled and made new colors. Wink) Then I wrapped the whole thing up carefully and microwaved it. I based my technique on the article at knitty.com. Does that make sense?

Oddly enough, my second wristwarmer is coming out with *perfect* spiral stripes. I have no idea why, what I did, how I did or didn't do this. Same skein of dyed yarn, same # of stitches, same needles... It's so strange - I'll post a pic when I finish.
