The new Knitty is up! And my first spin to knit pattern is up with it. :)

Verdigris fingerless mitts come in a short version,

and a long version.

I used twisted stitches, cables and lace. I wanted to make sure I covered everything. ;)

Many thanks to the lovely Olivia Foppiano for her modeling!

I used some lovely merino/tencel fiber (in Gingko) from Tactile, and some gorgeous high twist sock yarn (in Verdant) that can be found here, at the Royale Hare.

I found your blog (and tutorials) via this pattern. It's the first time in a long time I've printed a Knitty pattern immediately upon reading it (I think "Fetching" or "Knucks" was the last time). It's gorgeous and I can't wait to CO (and to discover your archives).

They are gorgeous -- I am casting on today in a lovely orange, almost vermillion color. I will post pics on Ravelry as soon as I have some progress! You're amazingly talented!

Are you in the San Francisco area? (I figured that out by the text of the pattern in Knitty and Muir Woods. I should be a detective, huh?) Anyway, I'm going to be there next weekend. Any advice? Must-see? Other than Carolina Homespun, that is!

Congratulations! There's something about your patterns that always makes me want to knit them. These days I was looking for some elbow lenght fingerless mitts, go figure.
I'm knitting yours right this evening :-)
