You can never have too many mitts either

 First up are my Kellie Fingerless Gloves which I made for wearing under my leather 'rigger' gloves. I now have a casual job at the local port counting logs prior to loading. It is an outside, work-in-all-weather type job so I figured I would need something to keep my warm in winter. I used a fine possum/merino yarn, doubled to get the equivalent of a fingering weight, and knit them on 2mm needles so they would be very dense.
 And then something a little more delicate: Miss Havisham, a Vintage Purls pattern and using Vintage Purls yarn. Added detail included beads and a little over-embroidery. I won't be wearing these on the wharf.
