Vanna's Choice fingerless Mits
My first experience with 2 circs was a rousing success, no laddering what so ever, and i got mits that fit perfect and are very comfy and such a pretty teal

I had to modify the original pattern because i have small hands, the original pattern was too long and too wide for me

Great work!

BTW: small diameter knitting using 2-circs is my all-time favorite. So easy to do...not futzy. I use 24" circs...and one pair is metal, the other pair is wood. I always lead off the rows with the metal...and the last set of stitches is on the woods. That's another way I avoid getting turned around and mixed up.

I use a boyd 24' circ and my knitpicks nickle options so the needles are different colors

I have no other use for my boyd circs, the cords are way too stiff, and they irk me to no end because they are so sticky compaired to my options...
