Recently I made a tea cosy, reminiscent of a juicy purple berry, and sang the praises of the yarn used -
Twilley's of Stamford Freedom Spirit.
I liked it so much, I knitted a pair of fingerless mittens in the same yarn. (Yes, yet another pair!! again, modelled by me, but this pair definitely for one of my younger relations.)
This must be the Easiest Fingerless Mitts Pattern Ever. They are just garter stitch rectangles, stitched together at the sides leaving a gap for the thumb, with a crocheted chain added to gather the wrist slightly. I see Ysolda does a slightly more advanced version, including thumb openings, and I might try that when the fingerless mitts bug hits me again.
