FO: Dashing Fingerless Mits
I just finished knitting a pair of Dashing Fingerless gloves from Knitty.com. I started out making them for myself, but I'm going to send them to my niece instead. I hope she likes teal.

Those turned out very nice. I love the color.

I made a pair of these recently. I have a question for you. Were you able to follow the pattern exactly as given, with no changes, and have it all turn out just right? I got to a couple of places where it seemed I couldn't do what it said, so changed it a bit. I'm just wondering if I had just gone ahead and followed the directions it would have worked too? What was your experience with the pattern? Yours look great.

I had improvise on the thumb. My rib pattern didn't line up with the rib pattern on the rest of the glove, so I just put a few purls where I saw purl stitches, and knit the rest of them. I'll probably just do the thumb in stockinette next time. Is that the same place where you had trouble?

Thanks for the compliment.

Also, that cat is ADORABLE - the one in the attached photo! Very pretty cat! It's too bad I'm allergic or I'd get one just like that! What kind is he (or she)?

Are you talking about Merlin, the one on the pet perch, by the window. He's a himayan. I got him at the shelter, so I'm not sure if he's full blood, but we loves him anyway.
