Bitchin' Fingerless Mitts

Bitchin' Fingerless Mitts

Knit for the Bitchin' Mittens Knitalong 2006

I used my handspun Corriedale (spun approximately fingering weight) carried together with a strand of sportweight lambswool superwash wool that I dyed in Kool-Aid and yellow liquid food coloring. Held together, they created a yarn that was approximately Aran weight (heavy worsted).

I used a generic ribbed (2X2) fingerless mitts pattern with thumb gussets, cast on 28 stitches for a nice snug fit, on size 5mm/US 8 double-pointed needles.
