Fingerless Mitts

Yarn: Classic Elite Waterspun (discontinued) 39 g. total (approx. 108 yards)
Needles: 3.75 mm (US 5) dpns at first and then moved to two at a time on two circulars after I closed the thumb holes.
Pattern:Hand/Wristwarmers from Last Minute Knitted Gifts
length 8" to fit my teenage son's large hands
My first but certainly not my last knitted mitts. Making two at once on two circulars from the same ball of yarn enabled me to make them exactly the same. I liked the pattern but next time I'll put it a thumb gusset to give the thumb some warmth. I wish this yarn weren't discontinued because it was a delight to work with and my son loves the mitts.
