Now I've had these done for a good while now, but haven't gotten round to posting them. I made a bunch of finbgerless mittens for my local animal shelter open doors day and fair.
They are knit using various yarns from my stash - the pink/white one is dyed by myself with Kool Aid! They're all knit on 4mm needles (except for the blue-green ones, which are smaller and knit on 3mms) and have the same simple thumb construction (a hole with live stitches which you then pick up).
As much as I like making fingerless mittens, I won't be making any in the near future. Enough is enough! I do hope they brought some money for the animals though.
Love the mittens, they look great! The pink ones that you dyed yourself are fab! I must try some kool aid dying again soon.
Oh thanks for the plug for my blog on Ravelry, you made my day!
You're very welcome! I still have some wool to dye as well, maybe I could dye some during Christmas holidays!
