At half-mitt

Look! I have knitting
It's not a Lestrange cardigan past the armhole split (four more rows to go!) or a woven plaid scarf (haven't touched it since last week!). Nope... it's my Reading Mitts!

These have been my work-time lunch hour project, and admittedly, they really should be a lot further along than they are.  But I lost two days this week (Monday holiday, Tuesday sick day)... and I kept forgetting to pack some yarn to put the thumb stitches on, so I couldn't go any further until I remembered. They won't get worked on tomorrow either, as we have lunch-time team-building activity.

But they are coming along nicely, if slowly. I'm making the smallest size. In truth, I probably should have done the medium, but these have a nice snug fit, and I kinda like that.

I may cheat and finish this one up on the weekend, so I can start Monday fresh with the second mitt - but we'll see... I also have some sewing and dyeing plans in the works too! I may run out of weekend!

I used to love knitting at work. I got so much done on my lunch break. At home I never seem to be able to set aside much me time. Hopefully you won't run out of winter before they are done. They are too pretty to pack up.

Sometimes things loosen up a bit when you block them. I prefer a snug mitt too. Yours looks great!

I love those mitts. I need to get started on mine soon. First I have to knit a hat.

That is a FANCY cuff--love it! You're going to have a pair of very pretty mitts.

Oooooh pretty! I prefer a snug fit, as it Always loosens up after a few wears.. Love to see a finished one ;-)

Good luck! I frogged my mitts in the same pattern after running out of yarn. I frogged them yesterday. i tried to make them very very long. i would have succeeded if I had made them the length the designer asked for.

Your fingerless mitt looks lovely so far! I really like this pattern.
