As I sit here at my computer, I am wearing my new fingerless mitts! Woo Hoo! For the first time in about 2 years I picked up a crochet hook to whip out these mitts. (An aside: For years I had been an advid crocheter; however, since I took up knitting, I haven't looked back. I, of course, use crochet for finishing touches—always a good skill to have.) I picked up this quick knit from Stitches West, which included a ball of S. Charles Ritratto yarn, the pattern and pretty buttons. Here's a closeup of the button.
