Fingerless Frenzy

The current trend of knitting nothing but fingerless gloves continues nicely here at Chez Insanity. In fact, I may even have a few patterns committed to memory. I'm starting to feel like I'm on some kind of mission to use every yarn at Knitting Arts to make fingerless gloves. Yes, I even have a pattern that calls for just one skein of Koigu. Here we have Maine Morning Mitts Version 2.0.

These were knit in Cascade's "Cloud 9" which is 50% Merino, 50% Angora. Very soft, very pink. Since I only have two hands I gave these to Melissa, who is one of my co-workers at Knitting Arts. This was primarily to stop her from stealing my Malabrigo mitts.

So you may be thinking to yourself, well is there really a fingerless gloves problem? April has only shown us two pairs so far. That's not so bad ...

Ahem. From left to right, one Maine Morning Mitt in Manos de Uruguay, a pair of Fetching in Karabella Aurora, Melissa's Cloud 9 MMM's, a pair of Malabrigo MMM's and finally one A Little Twist Wristwarmer in di.ve Autunno. There will be a much better picture of the "A Little Twist Wristwarmer" when the second one is done. It's a fantastic pattern. I highly recommend it. And hey, I may not know much, but I know fingerless gloves.

    I see no problem here. None whatsoever...

    They really are pretty! And useful! And you can knit whilst wearing fingerless mitts which is a very, very good thing. Plus, you are supporting your store by demonstrating the potential of the yarn in such a lovely yet practical way.

    I am sort of the Queen of Justification.
