Surf's Up Fingerless Mitts
These fun fingerless mitts capture the surf vibe of sunny Southern California: waves along the top and bottom borders, surfboards for the body of the mitts, and palm trees on the thumb gussets.
For the Yarnover Truck LYS in Los Angeles, California -- the blue is an exclusive colorway for the Yarnover Truck by Mira of Baah! Yarns.
I don’t surf but I do sometimes bodyboard. That’s my first bodyboard in the pics. I’m not too adventurous; I prefer waves that are chest high or lower. But I have been known to catch a wave too late, hang on for dear life for the inevitable three foot drop, and triumphantly ride it to shore. -Steph
