Awhile ago, I designed a few patterns that were to be yarn store only patterns. Now that time has passed and it's so dang rainy and Spring is taking its time to arrive, I thought you might like to see the Luxe Mitts pattern that I designed a few years ago.
Luxe Mitts are perfect little fingerless gloves that will keep your hands and wrists warm but your fingers free. Although these are made of cashmere (and take just one skein only), you could easily sub a merino or something lighter if you live in a climate where only a little bit of extra warmth is required.
Another reason I am putting this pattern out there now is that if you are someone who knits for others--especially at holiday time--that little voice in your head is surely telling you by now that it's time to get started! Not only are these compact and won't heat up your lap while you knit, they also knit up fast and if you put your mind to it, you'll be able to whip up a pair of these in a weekend or two.
