One pair of fingerless mits for Christmas !
I’ve been working on these, sans pattern, for about four days, while walking , standing at the stove, just ‘ about the house ‘ sort of knitting …. nothing too committed. I think I could easily knit one in a morning if I worked at it non-stop. Anyway, I’m smitten with pin-stripes !!! So easy to be ‘jogless’ too, just give the yarn a little tug when you come to switching colors, and then the single-row stripe ends stay all in line … it’s amazing… and so satisfying to have two color affects with no woven ends . I can see I’ll be knitting pin-stripes until I”m dizzy . One pair done, now to cast on for another !

mmmm – delicious, especially for a true stripe lover like me!
Thank you Sigrun, they’ll be for my 10yr old niece, who’s definitely still into pink !
Yes – I am a stripe lover too, these look VERY addictive. And very nicely photographed – very arty.
Love the new header, too.
Lizzi , these are the first I’ve attempted (since reading about the ones on your Ravelry projects and deciding I’d make them)… these of course, are for my youngest niece, who still chooses pink (I don’t think she’ll be looking here, so I doubt I’m spoiling any surprise). Glad you like the banner, but change was incredibly difficult 😉
Well, be proud of it. It shows off your colour work. Perfect knitting, beautiful tension.
Lizzi, the tension looks really tidy because, well, I’m knitting DK weight yarn with size #3 needles (and knit tightly as I do) producing really dense fabric…although the superwash wool is very soft and fluffy so it works out nicely.
