    Fingerless Mits Experiment

    Christmas is coming so I am still working on fingerless mitts for my guild sale the first weekend in November. One of my scarves made the poster. I decided to try an experiment with a couple of pairs of Mitts. I wanted to make long cuts to reveal another colour.  I wrapped some shrink tubing and some regular tubing like you might use in a fish tank in some wool. I gave it a quick felt to get the wool tight around the tube. I thought this might be the best way to keep the fibers where I wanted them. I placed them between the layers of the mitts. It worked really well. …
