Stranded & Pin-Striped Fingerless Mitts !

It’s here !

a more colorful ,

perhaps even more complex

sister of the original ” Jenjoyce Pin-Striped Fingerless Mitt ”  . . .

I’ve switched things about a bit, from  the original  ~ she is not quite so long in the wrist, but more conventional length, reversed the pinstripe pattern to show different in the increases at the thumb

. . . and look at her inside-out !

Here is a close-up of the color work ~ simply understated color stranding concept~ yet serious enough of a Fair-Isle effect, but on a completely  basic scale.   Therefore, I think this mitt & pattern is perfect for one who wants to learn how to do stranded color work , or  loosely termed as ‘Fair Isle’ knitting.

Some photos of them being worn by me (they are too snug in the photo, therefore when I wrote the pattern for these, I added one more 4-stitch repeat) . . .


All in all, I’m extremely happy, at this speedy second variation pattern writing came about, however haphazard and with whatever slight mistakes abound. I’m happy about it. It’s my second pattern, and it’s uploadable for FREE …. right… over HERE  !!!!

(( In case you’re wondering… I only had enough of my over-dyed chartreuse ( ‘bug guts green’ ) to make one prototype mitt, which started as an experiment, and a knit-walking project the other day, but ended up as the official pdf photo ~ so there you go !!  ))

I’d also like to thank Morrie & Lizzi for giving me all the  help & support that can possibly be given.

xxx I heart you both ! xxx

Nora’s Christmas Chulo


One hat, knit for one twenty-month old Nora, for Christmas.

Knit totally improvised,  over a couple of days, mostly during one Christmas party, and one long hike walking the hills.


Now finished, and will send off in the mail. I love it, and I think she will too.  Made from one-hundred percent Peruvian alpaca yarn, who couldn’t?

Well anyway, this is the first of as many gifts as I can possibly knit up until Christmas, which will be all posted in succession.  Starting another immediately… something stripey & pepperminty.
