Malabrigo Fingerless Mittens

Wow, these mitts I finished a long, long time ago. I don't know why I never posted about them, I guess I just got busy and never took any pictures. Now they are loved and very well worn.  They are starting to pill terribly and could use some love with the lint shaver.

I finished these back in February of this year just in time for our vacation to New York.  I knew it would be cold so I whipped up these mitts to keep my hands warm.
