i'm happy to report that i finished these fingerless mitts that i started two years ago. actually, i didn't work on them at all last winter and when i pulled them out recently i found that there was only about an inch left to knit on the second thumb. oh, dear.
most of the knitting is a distant memory, but i do know that i used this purl bee pattern as a starting point, re-calculating things since my yarn was a bit thicker (i cast on 38 instead of 60 sts). i added the picot edging for pizazz, but i also like how it snugs up all the openings, keeping out drafts and such.
i wore these a couple times before shooting photos, so if you spy any fuzziness about the palms, blame the powdered-sugar-covered-fritter i ate at the apple festival. it was too cold to take these things off.
