I knitted these fingerless mitts for a co-worker/friend. In lieu of the button flap, we added cute buttons at the top of the mitts. My friend has a funky and quirky style, and she was so pleased with the results. It made me feel like a million bucks.
I had to add little felt buttons to the thumb because I had a gap when I went from knitting in the round to back and forth. I could never get it tight enough. So I improvised.
Very nice job LOVE the color!
Those worked out really well. I love the improvisation at the thumb and the quirky buttons. Great job!
They are very very cute. Reminds me of the 70's!
Groovy! My favorite color and funky flowers. You came up with a far out solution to a problem, proof that you had an unexpected opportunity, not a mistake.
Time warp back to the present: Awesome mitts!
nonny2t, I thought of the 70s also.

Cute! Clever solution with the buttons, some knitters say about mistakes/mishaps in their knitting 'it has a design feature' Your desing features look as they were intentional.
Lovely indeed! I like the quirky buttons and your fix!
Is that another pair under this person's hands?
Cute and clever!
Yes! Good eye! Those were my prototypes.
Just wonderful!! :yay:
Oh these are so nice! I must knit some fingerless mitts for myself for next Winter!Always been on my TO DO list. You inspire me!
