When given the challenge to design a one-skein-project using Bijou Basin’s Bijou Bliss yarn, I knew immediately what to make! Fingerless mitts are a cold season staple: Perfect for winter driving, cold days at the office, and of course knitting. They leave your fingers loose to allow for a little extra dexterity, making them wonderful for a range of uses. I had knit a pair of fingerless mitts that I loved in an ultra-simple design last winter, but sadly the yarn choice left them looking a little ragged after wearing just a few times (see, even designers pick the wrong yarn sometimes!) I knew immediately that the Bijou Bliss would be great for a new version of these mitts because of its sturdy feel and fiber blend (Cormo Wool and Yak, yum!), and I cast on right away! The result is the Blissful Mitts - blissfully easy to knit, and blissfully quick, too! You’ll be wearing these mitts in no time at all!
