I finished knitting these fingerless mitts at Christmas but keep forgetting to photograph them. They are starting to look a bit scruffy, I must have worn them almost every day.
I have been a big fan of fingerless gloves but I've not worn mittens since I was about eight! I love these though, great for when I am out with my camera, my fingers are free to hold the camera and then when I put it away I find myself curling my fingers up tightly inside the mitts just like when I was a small girl!
The yarn is a Regia sock yarn, Kaffe Fassett Mirage in Earth and I used just one ball. Its 75% wool 25% nylon which is warm as well as hard wearing and the colours are a nice mixture of browns, olive greens and bright blues.
