2 FOs: mittens and fingerless mitts
I made the full mittens first, using double yarn to make them extra thick (sometimes when I get going fast, my knitting gets loose, and I definitely didn't want hole-y mittens!)


Then, I made these fingerless mittens, just by ending early on the mitten pattern. The snowflakes I added myself.

Cute, cute, cute

The snowflake adds a wonderful touch! What pattern and yarn did you use?

Thanks! I used this pattern:

http://www.midnightknitter.com/knitp...ittens_two.htm

For the mittens, it's just cheap Red Heart yarn, (what can I say, I'm a poor college student, and two skeins of yarn for 5 bucks is really appealing ) but it works really well-- I took them out in the snow for an hour or so, and they didn't soak through at all. Alas, on the fingerless ones I seem to have thrown away the labels, but I think the green was called something like "Lambs wool" brand, or something along those lines. It was chunkier, so I didn't double the yarn.

I have to have the fingerless mitts! I was just reading up on how to do duplicate stitch -- is that how you anchored the snowflakes? Excellent job!
