No Wool For You

I always got a kick out of when the Soup Nazi was on Seinfeld. We occasionally work in the "No ____ for you!" into our conversations. I thought these would be cute fingerless mitts to try, but since I don't have a recipient in mind, I always knit them up in acrylic. That way I know they will not need special treatment if given to someone who forgets that kind of stuff. The pattern is called "Lofty Wool Cable Mittens" and I usually change up the name of my project when uploading it to Ravelry. I try to make a play on the name in some way. So you can kinda see where this name was coming from. Anyway...I did my usual modifications to change them from mittens to fingerless mitts. If I make them again I will probably not do the increases in the palm area as they are a bit looser than I like. The rolled hem at the wrist is a different twist on the usual ribbing and I like that bit of difference.

This will be my last pair of mitts for NaKniMitMo. I was able to crank out 4 pair.

Thank you. Do you need some fingerless mitts? I would be happy to make you a pair.
