The Thing About Fingerless

Happy April!!! No fooling here, just thrilled we made it through March.

I worked on angora mitts last night.  I have one finished.  I cast on 40 stitches on size 4 needles and worked in the round until my knuckles. Then I knit back and forth in garter only for the cuff.

I’m still pulling little fibers out of my nose.  DSCF9125Now this is very very old fingerless from years ago.  They are perfect for working in the stables with the horses.  Machine wash and dry ….and they are warm.

Fingerless gloves/mittens are so useful.   Along with socks I think I use them the most in my life.

The sun is out!  It came out yesterday.  True to March bleck, it was absent from our viewing for the full last week of March.  The stars and the moon came back last night too….Happy April Everyone! No foolin!

  1. Love the mitts – nice job! Knitting with both angora and mohair bother my allergies, so I avoid them whenever I can.

    Yesterday was a rainy day, all day. It’s odd that even though my yard was covered with thick snow from December – February, it was the rain that made it perk up. This morning the sun is trying to shine and everything looks fresh.

  2. The mitts look warm…cool, grey and windy here ; a good day for the Nat’l Kite Flying Festival on the Smithsonian Mall today. I’m staying home.
    Cheers~
