Silky Mitts

The Malabrigo obsession continues.....this time a tryst with the silky merino.

FO: Silky Mitts
Pattern: Susie's Reading Mitts by Janelle Masters (free!)
Yarn: Less than one skein Malabrigo Silky Merino in a pretty lavender color
Needles: Size 5 DPNs

I love fingerless gloves! I find them to be functional and cute, and I wear my other pair all the time. I have been eyeing these for eons, and finally knit them up over my spring break. I was quite pleased to find that I could knit the smallest size with less than one skein of the Malabrigo. Short and sweet. I like the scalloped edge and the easy lace combined with the simple stockinette. I love lace bits thrown into stockinette or garter pieces. Contrast is good.

I think it goes without saying that I heart the yarn. I started with three skeins, I now have one fab cowl and these gloves. What will my awesome third project be?

Your silky mitts are beautiful, even though I harbor an irrational bias against fingerless gloves. These just might make me an convert.
