Lotsa Mitts...

So I followed through on my plan to darn in those ends...

Of course, it's pretty tricky to photograph yourself wearing a PAIR of mitts...

I'm loving this pattern.

There's NO SHAPING whatsoever - but the shell stitch pattern stretches to accommodate the shape of the hand...

Then there's just a little peek-a-boo hole for the thumb to pop through...


Mitts

I tried working them backwards, from the fingers down - so that I could add a little trim at the arm hole like this:

But it actually made the thumbhole feel more restrictive. Weird. But it does.

I made some long crazy mitts...

And some short ones:

Thirteen pair so far!

whoa! I love the grungy looking ones the best, the lace makes them look rather vampish.
Great work

These are great, Sharon! I hate knitting with dpns and crocheting these looks easy and quick.

You have been busy, you just need some cooler weather to wear them all :)

My, you really have been busy! Love them all, so funky looking. The trim on the ones worked from the fingers down would look lovely as a trip at the fingers i think.
