I'm halfway up my second one.  I can never follow a pattern religiously so I have done mine in K2P2 rib and have made a little bit for my thumbs, as that is the sorest joint from all my spinning etc.
I love them  :) :)

I love it when a pattern develops. I think sometimes we just read a pattern to give us ideas and then run from our own minds with the rest.

I think this pattern is good for beginners to follow and the more seasoned knitter to play with..

PM'd you.

If you get Simply knitting magazine this month it has clear tips with pictures in it (and a lovely set of free darning needles)

Ellisr you are really kind to give your pattern to us but I know what you mean about family.  I've only been here a short while but it does feel like a big family.  ;D

a - I'm glad someone else sometimes reads things wrong the first time,  ;D
and
b - could I have a copy as well ellisr? mum taught me to knit but I never did master 'casting on', but if it keeps fingers warm for when I milk the goats:o, I'm sure they will appreciate it  ;D

(I love this family as well :thumbsup: )

what a brilliant idea - I have just finished plying up some wool I have spun and would love a copy of the pattern to knit some for my OH.  I am in France and with the winterv fast approaching need an excuse to sit in front of the log burner and still feel I am doing something useful.   ;) ;)

thanks so much
  I have plied a bobbin of black ouessant fleece with a white fleece to make a tweed effect so the mittens should look good.  I also have some angora / mohair that I spun so might make some for myself.  You have inspired me to start knitting again and that takes some doing.  I think because it is a small project  I will be able to do it quickly whereas a long bum length jumper takes a tad longer.  Thanks again - Jan.
