Kolenya Fingerless Mitts

I made some mittens.
Yep.
I sure did.
I made them from the pattern Kolenya by Sheep and No City. Really enjoyed it, very easy, quick, and plus it only took one ball of yarn! Also it's a free pattern :)
I used Noro Chirimen in the blue colorway. I love how they turned out and seem almost to be made from two different balls of yarn but that's what I like about them. I ended up making them much longer than the pattern calls for since I have larger hands than most and they fit peerrrrfect :).

They were very relaxing to knit even if I did sweat quite a bit knitting them in the heat of the summer............ why is it sooooo hot?
Anyways, I forgot to photograph it but they have these nice little crocheted finger placements to fit like little cubby holes which I really like. They keep my hands nice and warm and I can't wait to really be able to use them in the cold.

Another finished project!! I'm really staying on track and it makes me so happy. I feel really relieved that my project pile is actually diminishing. So good.
XOXO, Callie
