Fingerless Mitts

Fingerless Mitts, originally uploaded by Ladymama.

Finally finished these last week. I used Classic Elite Wool Bamboo on size 5s, and the pattern is from an issue of Interweave from last winter. They're too big, and despite my best efforts I couldn't figure out how to narrow them without totally messing up the slip stitch pattern. I also felt like a true amateur when I ended up with 28 tails to weave in. Yes, that's 14 per glove. No, I did not join new yarn at every round.

They look great, in spite of your foibles. Will you wear them or gift them? I love your color choices.

Thanks! I've been wearing them but am considering making myself another pair sometime and finding these a new home.
