The single skein of Mandarin coloured yarn was crying out to be made into a pair of fingerless mitts. They wanted to be a simple design, close-fitting with a double cable running down the centre. They needed to be long, seamless and with enough finger coverage to keep those Winter chills at bay. They told me they were happy but needed some shorter, part-fingered friends and so the second version was completed. The finished mitts are snuggly-warm and I love them both!
