Snug-Fitting Fingerless Mitts

22 Nov

This pattern is for my author friends and others who spend too much time at the keyboard on cold winter days. These fingerless mitts have nothing between the fingers and are made to fit snuggly so that they don’t interfere with the keyboard or mouse. And with no fancy stitching … they knit up in a snap!

For driving and outdoor wear, try my Glovelets pattern.

    I’m going to try this pattern. I ended up on your blog because I was trying to find out about the hand spun, hand knit shawl. That sort of thing is up my interest alley! Looking forward to reading some books!

      I knitted several of these this year for Christmas gifts. They are always well received. Some day I need to put a page on here with photos of my shawls. I keep thinking about it … but I don’t know why I’ll actually get around to it.
