It's all about the jewels...

Jewel-tone yarn that is!  I finally made myself a pair of fingerless mittens.  I was on a "yarn crawl" this summer and visited 3 LYS for the day.  Each shop had goodies they were giving away and patterns to take home.  One shop even gave out local Ted Drewe's ice cream - yummy!

So I found this pattern on the back of the yarn band of Artful Yarns Vineyard.  The pattern just uses the one skein - love it!  They worked up very quickly on size 8 & 9 needles.  They were knitted flat and seamed up the side. 

The colors are absolutely gorgeous and I cannot wait until the weather cools off enough to wear them!  I just might have to make another pair - hmm.
