pick a pocket, or two?

I've been knitting some warmth to prepare me and my love for the upcoming New England winter. Most recently, it was fingerless mittens for the both of us (Thanks again, Martha!).

Mr. James loves them and claims that they are perfect for pick-pocketing in London (after which he proceeds to loudly belt songs from the musical, "Oliver"). I was thinking more along the lines of late autumn outdoor guitar strumming...but that's just me.

I always need my fingers free for my fanatical winter photo-shooting and these are the perfect solution. I made some crocheted ones last year, but I like the look of knit ones better.

  3. Pick-pocketing, photo-snapping . . . to each his own, right? ;)

    Love them! My mom may not love you though when I show her what's next on my wishlist. She's the knitter in our family!

  4. They look great! I never really could figure out the purpose of fingerless gloves, but oh yes! guitar strumming! Picture taking!

    Please consider joining my knitting party on Fridays, called fibers on Friday. We'd love to have you!
