Issue 229 Lush Fingerless Mitts
As a functional small project to keep your hands warm and pretty, I love everything about these mitts! This pattern from Susan Mills features a bit of cabling combined with ribbing to keep the knitting interesting but not overly taxing. They're my idea of the perfect extra project to have going along with several other projects (because who can have just one!).
Made in beautiful, soft, fuzzy Lush, these mitts make a perfect gift to have on hand when you need something a little extra special. Lush was discontinued recently, sadly...angora has become much harder to find for hand-knitting yarns. You can probably still find Lush at your local yarn store, but if you have trouble finding it, read on for some other yummy suggestions!
