These Mitts

I worked up a pair of Leslie's: Those Mitts. They are going to be a Christmas gift for the girl's piano teacher. He, in addition to being a pianist, is an artist, a gardener and an avid hiker. I think these will come in very handy. I loved the pattern! Thanks for sharing, Leslie! It was easy to follow and the thumb opening is so effortless. No picking up or holding of stitches. I will be making some more of these.

Here's the nitty gritty:

Pattern: Those Mitts from A friend to knit with

Yarn: Lion Brand Wool Ease in Heather gray

Needles: DPN size 6

Size: I made them 5 1/2" before I worked the thumb opening.I had my guy try them on for a quick photo shoot before leaving for work...They fit great! (I know the neighbors have to be wondering why I'm always taking pictures of people and things outside at strange hours. Oh well, gotta make use of that natural light!)
