FO: Beaded Fingerless Mitts
Made these for granddaughter's birthday. She will be 17 on the 13th. She loves hot pink and beads so I thought she'd like these. The pattern is Prudence from Knitting in the Details (got at library :) ), but I didn't really follow the pattern much. I made them in the round instead of flat which involved some changing, I didn't listen to anything she said about the thumb, just made one, and moved the diamond shaped set of beads to the finger end. They look like Prudence though.

Hot pink and beads, what's not to love, and they're so beautifully made. :thumbsup: Your granddaughter is very fortunate. Patterns are a starting point and what we do from there is up to us, your changes make these unique!

Your GD and mine share a birthday! Mine will be 14.

Oh, very pretty! I love the picot edging, the color and the beads. GG's right as ever, who wouldn't love a pair of these?

Wonderful work, Judy! These fingerless mitts are really beautiful, especially the embellishment with beads part!

Very pretty! Who wouldn't be delighted to get such a gift? Congratulations on a job well done.

Absolutely gorgeous! And they (most likely) have the added bonus of clicking when tap your hands against a hard surface, so with these your granddaughter can drive everyone insane! (At least, that's what I'd do!)
