The colourful fingerless mitts for Jenny are almost half done! I’m now praying that I have enough of the yarn left to at least make the second mitt. Whether they have button bands or not will very much depend on how the yarn holds out. So, the first mitt now looks like this:
I won’t sew it up until I know whether or not button bands will be included, as they have to be sewn into the side seams.
Substituting 3mm needles for the 4mm the pattern calls for seems to have worked reasonably well, fortunately. The fact that the Hullabaloo yarn is Aran weight rather than Double Knit has been effectively negated without having to do any math, though these mitts are marginally smaller than the DK ones, so qualify as small-medium rather than either the small or medium sizes of the pattern. So far, Jenny loves the look of them!
