Fingerless Mitts Pattern

I have looked and looked for a fingerless mitts pattern that would be easy to do, but never found one, so I did my own.
Here it is. Hope you like it and can use it. I used Red Heart Strata and size 7 needles.

Cast on 32.
k2 p2 (repeat 10 times)
stockinette stitch (k1 row,p1 row) repeat 20 times
k2p2 (repeat 5 times)
bind off
Almost forgot to the sides leaving an inch to and inch and a half for the thumb.
I made 4 sets of fingerless mitts out of one skien, and had some left over. I work in the shipping area and need my fingers free, and did not want to use an expensive yarn. These knit up fast, wash and dry in the machine, come out looking nice as they went in. I was really happy with them.

First Angel..Margot

I need you to email me at:
telling me somethings about you. Your likes, dislikes, colors you like or hate, books you read, crafts you do, size you wear, and anything else you think I may need to help me in my "quest".

Pay it forward

I can't believe it has been over a month and I have not posted anything!!! It must be because of getting everything done at the last minute for Christmas. Every year I tell myself I will start earlier, but I end up with so many ideas and am still sewing and knitting on Christmas eve. Everyone at work sees me knitting all the time and so I could not disappoint my coworkers. I crochet fast, but knit slow, so I crocheted tops on dish towels for all my friends at work. My special friends got extras. That way, everyone got something handmade and all were happy.

"Pay It Forward Exchange I'm SO EXCITED to be a involved in the Pay It Forward Exchange! I found out about it from Sue at

Let me tell you about it, these are the instructions: "It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based of the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise! What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

I will now Pay It Forward to you THREE, I wonder who you will be?! Please, be a PIF! You will enjoy it just as much as we do!"

And, have 6 months to get your gifts done! Come on, you know you would love to be one of my angels. Then, one day, but you don't know will get a gift that I have made especially for YOU!

Please remember, you don't have to knit or crochet to participate, anyone who can make a nice handmade gift is welcome to join :)"

(Sue, you said it so well on your blog, that I knew I could not say it any better, so I just put what you said right here!)
