earlier this winter, whilst reading at night before bed, i realized that my hands and wrists were always freezing cold. i promised myself that as soon as the christmas sweatshop was closed i would make myself a pair of fingerless gloves to keep on my bedside table, to wear at night while i read before bed.
the pattern is the sleekit mitts (rav link) and it was my second try at finding a pattern that would work *with* with the yarn, and i couldn't be happier with the results.
the yarn, which is sock yarn from hello yarn, has been in my stash for ages (honestly i think i bought it before we moved to mankato, which would mean i've had it for at least seven years!). i've been saving it because i loved it oh-so-much i wanted to find *the* perfect pattern to knit with it.
it makes me so happy when things come together so perfectly!
