Fetching Fingerless Mitts

This is my favourite pattern for fingerless mitts. It is a free pattern from Knitty.com and they are called Fetching (click the blog title for a direct link) They are really quick to make. These are made from Patons Diploma DK on 4mm needles. I adapt the pattern slightly and make one extra set of cables and 2 rows of K1 P1 rib at the top as when I made them exactly to the pattern I found that the palm curled downwards and they were a bit too short. I also added a couple of rows of rib to the thumb to lengthen that.

I am still battling Internet problems. I get disconnected every couple of minutes so I hope that I can post this blog today without any problems. My cordless phone upstairs has stopped working and when I plugged a normal phone in the phone socket came away from the wall. It just doesn't seem to be my week! Too bad I didn't ask for a new set from Father Christmas. I guess I will be buying myself a new set of cordless phones after Christmas. Let's hope that there are some great bargains in the Sales.

I am still knitting bits and bats for Christmas but if they don't get finished then I am not worried.

Happy Christmas to everyone. I will try to post again tomorrow but just in case I can't then I hope that everyone has a wonderful time.

We've had some cascade failure at our house, too. I hope it stops soon for both our homes.

I've been just amazed by all the work you've produced. I'm still working on just two projects and can't seem to make any headway.
