Hands On!

 I made my own version of the Rhinebeck is Calling fingerless mitts. 
 I shortened the thumb gusset and the length of the mitt after the thumb
 to better fit the elderly recipient.
You can see how much shorter I made these
 than the ones on the right that were gifted to me.
These mitts will be stylish, comfortable and easy to care for
 in the WanderingCatYarn of single ply superwash Merino!
Since I have so much yarn leftover, 
I am making a pair of plain mitts like this for my oldest granddaughter to wear!
  She will love the color and the fit of these slim mitts!
