A few weeks ago, our building at work started to get really, really chilly! I can't concentrate when my wrists are cold, and typing in gloves is pretty much impossible. On a particularly nasty Friday afternoon, I found a solution in Susie's Reading Mitts. The free Ravelry download is really quick to knit up and required only one 50g ball of Rico Design Essentials Merino DK. The mitts are ever so slightly large - perhaps because I just have tiny hands or perhaps because I used the magic loop method rather than double-pointed needles. Maybe my gauge was off - I rarely swatch. Still, I'm very happy with the results. And the heat was turned on in the office the following Monday!
