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.
