first off...these rock!!!...love them...i have made a pair of bella mitts from the same pattern...but i would like the fingerless mitts better...where did you stop knitting and b.o. ? thx

honestly, i don't know exactly, since i was originally completely finished with one mitt (which i later unravelled part of) and partially finished the other. i think i had about twenty more rows to go on the unfinished mitt when i decided to bind off. i hope that helps! Smiley

Great job! I love the design...I would love to make myself a pair, too scared though (I am a beginner at knitting/crocheting). Keep up the good work  Grin!

don't be scared! these look a lot more complicated than they actually are, and it's a really satisfying project since they don't take that long to knit up. it's also a great way to learn a bunch of new skills: knitting in the round on dpns, cables, picking up stitches, etc. i encourage you to embrace the challenge. you'll be a skilled pro in no time!

so.....i started knitting a pair of bella's mitts (the pattern can be found here: http://subliminalrabbit.blogspot.com) for a co-worker waaaaaaaaay back last december. until i ran out of yarn. and then i spent MONTHS looking for that yarn and couldn't find it anywhere, which is not surprising since i bought it about 4 years ago originally. it was quite frustrating because i had one mitt done (except for the thumb), and i only had about another twenty rows to go on the second one (excluding the thumb again). so i kinda tucked the project away in a bag, stuffed it into my knitting bin, and ignored it. until now.....

so fast forward to last week, when i *finally* dragged this forsaken project out of hiding, and decided to unravel the top portion of the basically completed first mitt, and i bound it off. then, i took the "new" yarn that i'd reclaimed, and used it to do half thumbs on both. i also bound off the unfinished edge on the second mitt; and now instead of being full bella mitts, they are beautiful bella armwarmers.

and my co-worker loves them! Smiley

BOTH of the rugs shown so far are truly stunning. i actually *just* finished sorting out all of my wool scraps, and while i don't yet have enough to make this project, i am working up my stash...slowly but surely....because i was *MEGA* inspired when i saw this post originally! Smiley

as *soon* as i stumbled across this (http://juliannesmith.wordpress.com/2009/12/04/free-knitting-pattern-burberry-inspired-cowl-neck-scarf/ ) pattern on ravelry, i *knew* i had to knit it! i love the whole look of the slightly scattered cables, and it's pretty mindless to knit - i blasted through it while watching two pvred episodes of iron chef america - yes! i used lion brand vanna's choice yarn in rust, and it took *just* under a skein to do three repeats. it fits very nice and snug, which is exactly what i wanted, and it seems as though i knit it at just the right time because it was perfect for pulling up around my face while braving the *ultra* cold weather in toronto this weekend!

i decided not to do the provisional cast on (cuz i hate it with a seething passion), and instead just did a quick seam job up the back, which im totally fine with. Smiley

i honestly don't remember. i think i just initially divided them up as follows among four needles: 11, 11, 11, 10, and then just moved stitches around as needed, or whatever made the most sense to me based on what was happening in the pattern. i hope that makes sense. Smiley good luck!!!!
