I'm very proud of my new fingerless mittens! I used the pattern Mitt Envy (Ravelry) as the basis, but made them longer and played around with different motives and colors. I had so much fun planning and making them that I forgot to eat! I love to be in that creative flow!!
I never thought that I would enjoy knitting on tiny needles, but it's very relaxing. Also, knitting mittens is a great way to use up all those small amounts of left-over precious yarn in the stash and they are finished in a couple of hours. Instant gratification! I've been bitten by the mitten bug, for sure!
