Not quite the end of the May mitts but almost. I have two more mitts to share with you. First up are the Axel Mitts. Knit up for myself with Knit Picks Cadena in Leaf. Another mitt for myself.....I have been doing a lot of selfish mitts and between you and me I kind of like it. My hat/mitt basket in my closet will be very stocked come fall. In the picture is one of many baby peaches on my peach tree. Finally this year I think we are going to have a lot of fruit.
I really liked this mitt because you can wear them long when it is really cold (as it was at night land sailing and I needed something to protect my hand from the chill of my cocktail).
Or you can fold the top down and they can be a bit more traditional fingerless mitt. I wore these most of the weekend because I could move the top up or down as desired. Up for drinks, down when assembling s'mores.
I also knit a pair of Dashing for my husband. I omitted the cable at the wrist and just knit them all the way up with the ribbing. I think it is a good basic fingerless knit pattern, especially for the menfolk. Gabes made some gorgeous Bella's Mittens that you can see here. Alisha made some cozy mitts here.
