On Task


I finished the fingerless mitts yesterday for Christmas gifts.  The yarn is moda dea which is incredibly soft and has a lovely feel to knit with.  I am pleased that it is superwash so it will be a breeze to keep clean.

The pattern is fetching. This is my go to fingerless mitt pattern, I think because I have it memorized and it's super easy to whip up.  I like to do four cables on the wrist section and three cables on the palm section. On the thumb, I knit 10 rows before binding off.  I also eliminate the picot edging.

  1. These are beautiful! I like the ones I made myself earlier this fall. I wish I'd made the tops a little longer but aside from that I did the same modifications you did. It was my first cable project too and now I want some more!

  6. Love the cables Karen, they add just the right touch.
    I am working on another pair of peekaboo mitts and
    after that I will only have one more pair to go,
    I think I just might make it after all!

  14. They look beautiful and I am sure they will be much loved. I love your ability to stay on task. I'm quite sure I would have knitted one fingerless mitt and then started another project... :)
