Love, Love, Love! This pattern rocks! These are the Cafe au Lait Mitts by Paula McKeever.
I found this beautiful pattern on one of my late night computer binges. Late at night seems to be the only time I have more then 5 minutes to look at the computer. Ever since my daughter learned how to play games online its an everyday fight over computer time.
There is a group on Ravelry called Fingerless Glove Fanatics and this pattern was chosen for a knit a long for August. This month there is a random drawing for those who finish before Aug 31st. There is still time if you want to try it.
The pattern is easy to follow, forgiving and interesting. I need patterns that are interesting. Too much monotony is not good for my brain. I start to get bored and I want to move on to something new. The cool thing about this pattern is that it is forgiving. I made a couple of little mistakes and they vanished into the busyness of the pattern. I cant find them now.
I made this pair with Knit Picks Swish DK in Eggplant. I used the entire ball with only a couple feet to spare so be careful you don't waste your yarn. It would suck to run out of yarn with only a couple rows left.
These are destined to be a gift. Bummer for me. That just means I will have to knit another pair for myself!
