Modification Monday: Cry Me a River Mitts

 
Original Pattern: Kalajoki Socks

Knitter Extraordinaire: Annabel (Ravelry ID)

Mods: Using the design for the socks as a stepping stone, Annabel created these great-fitting arm warmers. Project page with great details on her mods can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome: I'm always quick to say that a great sock pattern can be modified into an arm warmer pattern, but the truth is it requires a little more math than that to get a good fit through the arm and wrist. Annabel did a superb job with these mitts- they look comfortable, cozy, and great-fitting. I love the placement of the design, and the thumb gusset looks perfect. These are beautiful mitts!!

Love this pattern and your site in general. That's one of the reasons I nominated you for a Kreativ Blogger Award.
A fun way to introduce our readers to blogs they might not know about.
