Dear Mom,
Before we go over the sea to Skye, I want to show you my latest knitting pattern which was inspired while waiting for the ferry from Armadale (on Skye) to Mallaig.

These fun, fingerless mitts are easier than they look. Only one color is used on each row and a simple, but tricky stitch pattern creates the polka dots. They are knit flat and seamed. I was able to knit one complete mitt on a road trip last weekend.
The sample mitts are knit with Baah La Jolla and Zauerball yarns.
I've put the pattern on ravelry and a pdf download is available to purchase.

We've enjoyed unusually warm weather, but the weatherman tells us that is all changing tonight. Fingerless mitts may be just the thing we need this weekend!

Be Warm!
