I have a queue of fingerless mitts to keep me busy for a year. I love all of the different stitch pattern and looks each one offers. They are a quick and addictive kind of knit. Those who knit socks say the same thing about that passion. I don't have the desire to knit a huge project like a blanket or a sweater. Give me these fast and lovely knits like hats and fingerless mitts and I will be happy.

This pattern, "Sweet Life" was fun to knit. I love how the honeycomb pattern doesn't show itself right away and then there it is. It is the type of stitch pattern that looks complicated, but isn't. I modified the pattern a bit be making the palm area stockinette instead of ribbed. I love how they turned out.

These are #11 in my 11 fingerless mitts in 2011 challenge. I made it!
