Notes

This is the last to final test knit for the RBK Fingerless Mitts. I used left over yarn from my Elibelinde (Fearless) as MC and leftover CoBaSi yarn from one pair of socks for the CC.
A classic look with crisp lines. There was some tightness in the thumb and I made final changes before publishing the pattern. I am also aware that my “RBK” motif is not very neat; I am sure you can do better.

I did an I-cord bind off in CC on the thumb to match the bind off on the hand.

Finished just in time to wear at this year’s Sheep & Wool Festival in Rhinebeck , except that 70+ F temperatures may be a bit too warm…..
