These are not new to my favorites, exactly, but they are my current fixation. I don’t know if you know this about me, but I love fingerless mitts — both knitting them and having them on. Summer has truly arrived here, and I’m working in the hot zone this year, rather than in perpetually chilly SF, and so I’m dreaming of the day I can pull on some long, cozy lovelies such as these. Remind me I said this in a few months when I’m complaining about all the cold wetness.
LEFT: Humanoid mitts, winter 2011-12 (which will be easily replicated, and I happen to have 2 skeins of Blue Sky Bulky in this very color)
RIGHT: Quince and Co.’s “Moira,” pattern by Pam Allen (the exact yarn for which I also have in my stash)
I’m totally with you – a girl can’t have too many fingerless gloves!
I’m so glad you understand!
I love knitting and wearing fingerless mitts, too, and will most definitely knit a pair of that go up to my elbows. Talk about chic!
Right? I love how they’re part opera, part street urchin.
Love them also! I have that Pam Allen pattern, too. Obsessed with Quince and Co.!
I think they’re the first people I actually paid for patterns from.
Karen, do you have a link for those fingerless gloves? I looked on the Quince & Co site, but it’s not there. Thx.
The Moira ones? It’s http://quinceandco.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_15&products_id=17
I was just wondering about you last night, Nancy! Gonna make some mitts?
Thanks, Karen. I’ve got a lot going on lately. But I’ve been knitting vicariously through you and enjoying it immensely. Yesterday my mother gave me some old knitting supplies that she had. Among them were several old pattern books from 1941, 1956, 1966, and 1971. I can’t wait to get home with them and dig in.
