Straightforward Mitts


A new set of fingerless mittens for me, because someone keeps losing theirs and taking mine. It's a free pattern: Straightforward Mitts.

Knit in DK rather than 4-ply as South Africa is permanently out of 4-ply, or at least that's what they told me at the yarn shop.

that sounds like a national emergency :) seriously though, how can the whole country run out of 4 ply, forever??

Thanks for the link, I like those fingerless mitts. Yeah, I can't get sock wool either, apparently SA is permanently without that too.

(The possum merino is particularly delicious...)
