Mitts For Me - Finished in '09

Did I ever show you these? Reading Carole's post yesterday reminded me that I had never gotten around to showing these fingerless gloves off even though they've been finished since October!

Part of the delay in posting these is that I had to wait for a good day to take pictures. Finally we had a day with sun when DQ could fit in a few moments in front of the camera.

Then Stinkerbelle crashed the photo shoot. I guess she was happy to have DQ around too.

But I digress. These gloves were made from the Susie's Reading Mitts pattern by Janelle Masters in yet more DIC Classy (Night Watch is the color). I love these gloves and I wear them often. If I made another pair I'd probably make the thumb a stitch or 2 larger but that's a very minor thing.

Nice marriage of yarn and pattern!

I just finished a pair of these last weekend for a gift. I loved them so much that I cast on a pair for myself tonight. I love yours.

The blue is wonderful! Yes, I made the thumbs two stitches larger, and it helped. I like the definition of the pattern with your yarn.
