My First Mitts - Will they ever be done?

I loved making these up to this point. The thumbs scare me to death. I just can't seem to tackle them. They have been in this stage since before Christmas. Got suggestions?


  1. Fingerless or thumbs you have so little to complete. Beautiful yarn and work so far. Go for it. Even to make these fingerless you have to go through much of the same process as you would for thumbs.

  2. These look like Suzy's reading Mitts. (I think that is what the pattern is called) I made that pattern when I found it on Ravelry. The thumbs were surprisingly easy for me and they turned out really nice. Prior to that my experience level was simple top-down socks. Don't be scared... you can do this!!!

  3. Thanks Gail, they are indeed Suzy's Fingerless Reading Mitts. I have only knitted a couple of sweaters. I just have to get over the hump of tiny thumbs.
