Holiday Diversions – Free Fingerless Mitties

Many of the links posted here are from Ravelry.com, a free website for knitters and crocheters. If you don’t have your own account you can use ours: login: knitomatic2, password: knitomatic. But you should get your own account fast, ’cause you’re going to LOVE it!

It’s not really a try last minute gift, but this is what I have been thinking about lately ….. fingerless gloves/mitts/gauntlets (whatever they are called). It’s more of a “keep yourself occupied over the holiday” kind of theme.  Plus, the mitties are a project which travel well.  

If you have problems with the DPNs on the move, you can try a few other alternatives, including knitting with 2 circular needles, the magic loop technique using 1 long circular needle, or picking up a pair of really short circulars (addi makes 12cm circs ad clover makes 9cm circs).  If you have the DPNs keep them around to finish the thumb (if applicable)

Oh, and included below is a slew of different skill levels, ranging from Absolute Beginner to Intermediate, but they are organized in order of prettiness of pictures.
