Fingerless Mitts Times 3
Free up your crafting fingers while warming up
your hands. BY LEE MEREDITH

Ialways have cold hands, and being a crafter, photographer,
and all-around doer of stuff, I feel trapped when my fingers
are covered. So fingerless mitts are the perfect solution.
Way back in my early knitting years, I developed my super-easy,
fingerless, shapeless, fat and squishy “ninja mitts,” as I’ve always
called them. Then, when I dove into recycled crafting, I cut up
some old socks and came up with a couple of versions of sock
mitts, which are warmer than you’d think, and totally comfortable.
These mitt designs are great for finger mobility, can be pulled up
over balled fists for extra warmth, or can be taken off the thumb
and pushed back onto wrists for eating or added dexterity. Once
you make yourself a pair or three, with all that mitt agility you will
indeed feel like a ninja!
