When I first designed my Elphaba mitts, way back in 2010, I always had a plan to make a "companion" pair. Sort of the anti-Elphaba. I knew what stitch pattern I wanted to use, I even had the yarn. I just needed the time and motivation.
Well, it only took three years, but I give you Glinda!!!
pattern is up on Ravelry now, and just like Elphaba - it's a freebie. It's a simple three row lace pattern (two of those are straight knitting), so it's nice and easy to memorize. (If you've knit my Undine socks, you'll notice some similarities.)
Fingerless mitts are one of my favourite things to make. They are fun, fast, and use up just a bit of yarn, so they are great for leftovers. I'm already eyeing up the leftover Skinny Bugga from my Cranberry Bonnet... it would make a nice set, don't you think?
