Fingerless Mittens : One Pair Done One Pair Started

I finished my super soft pair of fingerless mittens (from Knitting At Knoon) & have already been enjoying them in the early morning when it's 54 in the house ! I can't say enough for the Debbie Bliss' bliss-full Alpaca Silk! It's one of my favorites - along with all things Noro of course! I decided that these might make a good holiday gift so I am at work on another pair in some lovely hand dyed wool - I figure I'll make 5 pairs or so.

Today I have been working on a "Professional Tote" - pattern from Creative Thimble. It's a great pattern with lots of zipped pockets and a place for a water bottle etc. There are lots of pattern pieces to cut out & then there are also lots of interfacing pieces to cut out too. Now that I am in the sewing mode I can see how well these instructions are written. In tomorrow's post I will show you more information about this great pattern !

Cute mittens! I can't wait to hear what you think of the professional tote - I've been thinking of making one.

Those sure look warm and cozy. I like the simpleness of them. I've seen others with patterns knitted in and don't care for them as well. May I ask what pattern you used?

Dont you just love these? My office is so cold in the winter I am working on a pair for myself out of some hand spun wool. Should keep my fingers nice and toasty.
