Fingerless Mittens

I’ve been trying to post this pattern to my website and wordpress blog for the past hour with no luck. Thankfully tumblr seems to like me. My goal was to have this pattern finished by the end of the day, I just have a couple mins left to spare. :-)
I’ll be back when my laptop or ipad decide to work properly to post to other sites and edit any formatting issues.



Enjoy!
