My Silver Lining

I'm coming along with my fingerless mitts of cotton/silver luxury yarn*** from Feel Good Yarn Company.
The pattern (World's End Fingerless Gloves) is easy to knit quite quickly and the  yarn is nice flowing through my fingers!  Always a plus.

I should have them done tomorrow!  Then comes the big experiment of "wearing them"!

***I did wash the skein of yarn first;  there is a recommendation to knit this yarn with a needle size larger than you usually do to allow for shrinkage but I did not want to play Russian roulette with this expensive yarn.  I soaked the yarn with hot water for an hour and then line dried it.  The mitts will be hand wash and air dried in the future.  It stayed soft and springy so I am sure I will have no surprises with my finished mitts!

  1. I read about this yarn somewhere... pity, no fibres available to spin myself:) I do hope that the mitts work for you and give you some relief - if not, at least they look pretty and keep you warm (which might be a relief in itself - DH has problems with his hands and finds warmth soothing...)
