Sometimes it's the little clothing details that make all the difference in cold weather. I have really bad circulation, so it's all about the hands and feet for me. I made another pair of fingerless mittens last night- this pair is from a piece of knitted fabric I bought at Oleana in Bergen. I think the piece was an imperfect sleeve, so these are rather mismatched- but i like them like that.
To make them I cut the fabric into two rectangles (approx 7" x 9") and overlocked all around the edges. Then I worked out where I wanted the thumb holes to be, and overlocked each rectangle into a tube, leaving gaps where I'd marked. Then I just wove in all the loose bits of overlocking thread with a darning needle- and voila!
Hope you have a good weekend!
