Owly Fingerless Mittens

Pattern: My own, but used Knitty's Fetching as a jumping-off point.

Rowan Wool Cotton - 1 skein

Needles: US 4

Date Completed: March 25, 2007

Comments: I made this fingerless mittens for my upstairs neighbor; she loves owls and the color orange. The yarn was leftover from a baby sweater I made for Bunchkin.

CO 56 stitches, rib pattern is k8, p2, k2, p2, doing the owl cable on the k8 portions. I used an afterthought thumb (no gusset) and the Elizabeth Zimmerman sewn bind-off.

These ended up taking a couple of weeks due to limited knitting time, but I'm very happy with how they turned out. And this yarn is really nice and soft. I can't wait to give to our neighbor!
