When I finished my cowl on Tuesday, I of course, immediately cast on two more projects. I said “no more seed stitch!” and what did I do? Start a project that was all ribbing. I’m a glutton for punishment I guess.

One of said projects is over halfway done already! Aren’t fingerless mitts great? The pattern is¬†Vino from Knitty and it’s available for free. I’m using Madelinetosh Sock in the “Gilded” colorway. It’s a gorgeous golden yellow color that I just fell in love with.



Of course my laptop camera messed up with the colors. The top picture is as close to real-world as I could manage. It’s a gorgeous color.

I’ve made a few mods to the pattern.

  1. Using German Short Rows instead of wrap & turn. I always get a gap with w&t so I’m using a different technique.
  2. Shortening the hand portion by one full cable pattern repeat. I wanted the mitt to stop at my first knuckle. You know, where you hand turns into your fingers? Yeah I wanted it to stop there instead of going up over my fingers. So I just left off that last repeat.

They’re not huge mods, but they do change things a bit.

I hope everyone has a great weekend, and maybe come Monday I’ll have a finished project for you readers! (Hopefully!)

      I was surprised a Knitty pattern has so few projects (less than 50!), but it’s great. I’m already working my way up the next one, they’re a pretty quick knit if they’re all you’re knitting. :)
