The Closet of Lulu Persnickety

A collection of oddities found in the closet of a most peculiar woman.
 

Happiness is a Warm Pair of Hands

Well, I've finally had some time to make myself something.



I was searching all around for good fingerless mitt patterns and of course, due to my high standards, I couldn't really find a good pattern.









So I made one up with a bit of influence from a pattern I found at Lion Brand Yarn's website. Their pattern for Cashmere Arm cosies was my inspiration.









However, with that pattern, it is worked flat, whereas I worked in the round. I shortened them up and only added the cabled "Happiness" symbol onto the back of the hands. The palm is worked in a rib pattern.







I'll post the pattern as soon as I write it up. The "Happiness" symbol came from Elsebeth Lavold's book VIKING PATTERNS FOR KNITTING. I love her book. Most of my self-made projects will have something from her book incorporated into it. If you use a solid color yarn, the cabled pattern will show up better. I was really itching to use this yarn, which I lovingly refer to as Urban Camo.
