So instead I decided to make him a pair of fingerless mitts. I've had the pattern Sucky Thumb Mitts in my queue for quite some time, but always wanted to knit something else first. When I got on my selfish kick a few days back, this pattern jumped off the screen at me. I could finish these in a few hours!
Thumb Mitts a couple times for not paying attention, I finished the first off easily in 45-60 minutes. By the time I had started, ripped, started again and finished the first mitt, it was time for bed. I finished the 2nd one easily the next day.
Woodland Fairy. This yarn knit up beautifully! I'm so happy with it. I already have plans for what else I'll make with this yarn.
