Colourblock Fingerless Mittens

Another one bites the dust,
Another one bites the dust,
And another one's done,
And another one's done,
Another one bites the dust...

Colorblock mittens

Can you tell I'm a little excited that another WIP pile project is now complete? :)))
These are the colour block mittens that I started at our annual knitty retreat with a couple of my knitty friends.

Colorblock mittens

Pattern: Colorblock Hand Warmers from Purl Bee
Yarn: MadelineTosh Merino Light (Mmmmmmm love this stuff)
Mods: Instead of the stocking stitch, I used a K4,P1 ribbing to help make the gloves a little more form fitting (instead of slouchy).

These are a great knit. Simple and fairly quick. I'm thinking they'd make great teacher gifts.

In other good news, we also completed the first 2 Bertie's Blankets - blankets for folks in hospice care, in memory of my Dad.
The first one, was led by my Mum in the UK with help from friends and family back there.
The 2nd was an effort I led with your help, and contributions from all over the US, and Australia too!.

Thank you soo much xxx
Hope you are having a productive week.
