The snow enforced hibernation has given me the perfect opportunity to continue on the quest to improve my knitting skills. I have finally moved on from hats and have spent the snow days learning how to do circular knitting.
Having spent so long being limited to little knitted squares, the thrill of being able to make something that I actually want is just lovely!
So, after mastering circular knitting, I have made a pair of fingerless mittens and I am, as always, very proud! Despite the lack of fingers, they are actually quite warm!
Here is the pattern if you would like to replicate them (although you would probably want to make them without the little holes and dropped stitches!).
They were super-speedy to knit, I finished them in a couple of days using 5mm double ended needles and lovely yarn from the happy sheep at Trevaskis farm.
