After you have knit a headband and you have 60 grams of wool left over, what should you use it for......
Yup, mitts and in this case the fingerless kind because I didn't have enough wool to make full mittens.
Wool - leftover Classic Wool that I hand dyed
Pattern - Wildflower Wool's Button Stitch mitten pattern with some obvious modifications for the lack of fingers!
Now, for those of you who know me you will know how I feel about these. I don't really see the point of them. If it is cold and snowy and you want to be warm, in my way of thinking, you want a full mitt. Trust me, every knitter I know has tried to convince me of the advantages of this style of mitt and I'm still not buying it. I must say though that I did have fun knitting them and I would make them again (to give away).
Since I now have my very own pair of fingerless mitts, I am going to give it an honest try to see if I can be converted. I am not making any promises. Stay tuned.
