Green/Blue Fuzzy Mitts

I am skipping WIP Wednesday in favor of a FO. I finally got a chance to take pics of the fuzzy green mitts.

Green and Blue Fuzzy Fingerless Mitts

Pattern: Maine Morning Mitts  by Clara Parkes
Size: Womans

Yarn: , Lana Gatto Amsterdam in green/blue
73% Nylon, 27% Acrylic

Yarn: Snuggly Wuggly Baby Sport by Loops & Threads in medium green.
100% Acrylic

Needles: Addi Turbo Circular size 7.

Cast on: November 13, 2010
Bound off: November 15, 2010

Comments: The pattern is well written, easy, and knits up quickly. I substituted the fuzzy Amsterdam for the cuff. I also altered the thumb gusset instructions as follows:

Rnd 1: K2, M1R, P1, M1L, patt to end.
Rnd 2: K7, P1, patt to end.
Rnd 3: K2, M1R, K3, M1L, patt to end.
Rnd 4: K9, P1, patt to end.
Rnd 5: K2, M1R, K5, M1L, patt to end.
Rnd 6: K11, P1, patt to end.
Rnd 7: K2, M1R, K7, M1L, patt to end.
Rnd 8: K13, patt to end.

Rnd 9: K2, CO 5 sts using backward loop cast-on, put 9 sts on holder for thumb, patt to end.
Rnd 10: (K4, P1) twice, patt to end.
Rnd 11: K1, sl1 K1 psso, K1, P1, K2tog, patt to end.
Rnd 12: K1, sl1 K1 psso, P2tog, patt to end.
Next rnds: Work in patt until mitt measures 8 inches from beginning. BO all sts in patt.

When you work the thumb make knit stitches where it says purl.

Live long and prosper. \\//
