Work in Progress Wednesday: Owl Mitts

I recently misplaced my last pair of fingerless gloves.  I use them mainly at work so that I can keep my hands warm while I type.  I sit in a very cold area so having the mitts on helps me stay productive.  I decided that misplacing these gave me an opportunity to work out a quick project that I hadn’t worked on in a while: fingerless gloves.  I love these because with worsted weight yarn it’s very possible to finish this project quickly.

I wasn’t sure about the owl pattern at first. I thought they weren’t really for me but for a younger version of me.   However, I’d always wanted to make these when I was younger and just starting out with knitting. The girl who wrote the pattern was a bit of a knitting idol for me at the time.  She worked at my LYS & was a knitting fiend.  So I picked this pattern out, thinking I could try it & give myself a new pair of gloves.  It would also be a good way for me to see if it would make a good gift for someone else. Either way, I wanted a pattern that would keep it interesting.

So far, I like how they’re turning out!  I also love that I got the opportunity to dig out the Punta Yarns Merisoft Solid, a skein that’s been sitting in my stash for years.  100% merino? Yes, please.  Knitting up nicely.  So delicious. Looking forward to wearing them.
