The Thingies

I went on a buying jag when some of my favorite yarn went on a very good sale. Now I am on a quest to use it up. I like this self-striping yarn. The colorway is pretty and looks great in a hat. I wanted to see how it looks on a pair of fingerless mitts.

This pattern, Malabrigo Hand Thingies, is perfect for this yarn. It knits up almost like stockinette, but the slipped stitches add a bit of interest. The mitts were a little tight for me, but perfect for Robyn. I will knit up this pattern again and add a couple of stitches to modify it for me.
