Fingerless mitts for CIC
The August challenge for the CIC knitting group was "fingerless mitts". Fingers or no fingers, the wooly hand-warmers have been a challenge for ME during the recent 100 degree temperatures. Nonetheless, I finished five pairs, pictured above. The red cabled ones were made following this pattern at Knitty . com . I made up the pattern for the striped ones, following the same general idea as the cabled mitts, but with simple 4 x 1 ribbing throughout and smaller needles for the cuff and top of the hands.
