If you’ve ever hand-made a gift for someone, you know that feeling you get of nervousness/excitement hoping that the recipient will like what you made. So you can imagine how happy I was that Loren, my stepdaughter, was to receive the fingerless mitts I made for her.
- Pattern: Camp Out Fingerless Mitts available on Ravelry
- Yarn: Noro Iro 98 purchased from my local yarn store, Common Thread, in Saratoga Springs, NY
These come together quickly. The only ‘special’ technique you’ll need to know is a provisional cast. There are lots of tutorials out there. I used this one.
Loren was thrilled with her gift. I also made a pair of fingerless gloves for her boyfriend using a Patons pattern. Here they are in progress –
Unfortunately these projects only made a small dent in my yarn stash which still looks a lot like this –
I’m still looking for inspiration. What did you make to give away as gifts? Add links to patterns you like in the comment section below. Thanks!
