Fingerless Mitts and a Vintage Swing Coat6:00 AM
A couple months back my mom bought me this really cool lime green, vintage swing coat. It has three-quarter sleeves and I thought some fingerless mitts would be really cool. (Karen had just made some cool mitts which gave me the idea). I went to my LYS and was trying to match yarn to the coat. The yarn shop lady suggested a contrasting color and picked up this gorgeous purple! I immediately said that's it! I used Cascade 220 superwash in Royal Purple!
After a quick perusal of Ravelry, I found this pattern and like it's simplicity. The pattern said to cast 28 stitches which was going to be way to small. I made the right one and I worked them up in a night. It was about two weeks before I started on the left one. Thinking I remember how many I cast on for the right, I cast on 36 stitches and knit away. Later than day when I was finished, I then realized that I must have only cast on 34 stitches for the right mitt. And apparently I can't count either because the left mitt is longer as well.
