I'm cutting it pretty close with my Ravellenic Games projects and have pretty much recognized that they are not all going to be finished by the deadline because of all the craziness in my life right now.
However, during the long orientation meetings this week I have been knitting away and have managed to finish my second Ravellenic Games project, a pair of fingerless mitts!
The yarn used was about half a skein of Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend I received as a wonderful graduation present. It was my very first experience with Manos del Uruguay yarn and I must say it was a joy to work with. This particular yarn base was single ply, which I've always been fond of because it gives a soft edge to the fabric. I also love the colorway, it reminds me of Fall, so I finished them just in time.
The pattern was Easy Fingerless Mitts by Maggie Smith, selected because I needed something simple to follow and I didn't feel like trying to work through designing them myself. I'm definitely happy with how they came out.
I hope that you are all having a wonderful Friday! Happy crafting!
