Another FO! This is right up there with my quickest completed project, I’m happy to say. Maybe only the acorn hat was faster. I sent the fingerless mitts off with my dad today. I hope they aren’t too big for him.

I made them very similar to Carolyn’s pattern, and I don’t really like the thumbs. I’m hard at work on BR’s version and hopefully I can get it to look better. I see a number of these in my future, since I have a lot of Cascade Pastaza and I’m sure my MIL and FIL could use a pair or two for work.

    How fast were you able to knit them?

    Tuesday night and Monday morning, so somewhere around 6 hours or less!

    6 hours, yeah that’s about how long it would have taken me to knit 1 of the pair of grey ones and I was listening to some very fast music too. But my last black mitten has been close to 4 days now, and that included one almost total frogging of it!
    I can slack off now that the rush is over.
    Its funny reading your posts as I could really feel the stress of finishing your projects before Xmas. So well done!!
