Fightin' Words

Mmmm, colorwork. In general, I like it a lot.* I especially like it in little bits of two colors where I don't have to worry about tacking the second color. I am very picky. Let it be known.

These were nearly perfect.

Fightin' Words (mine raveled here),
knit in leftovers--probably Knit Picks Gloss Fingering in Kenai
and Knit Picks Essential Kettle Dyed in Eggplant (discontinued)

I love colorwork on fingerless gloves and mittens. Hands are so visible. They are an excellent place to display knitting. I added four additional rows to the top of the chart and then another three rows of ribbing. Fingerless gloves should cover more than just palms, I think.

I recommend this pattern. I knit these as a gift, but I liked making them so much I will probably make more. Everyone needs a little Bam! Pow! in her life.

*Not intarsia. I shake my fist angrily at intarsia.
