rainbow brite mitts

I was knitting faster than blogging last month, so I've got a bunch of finished projects to show off! Fingerless mittens have become one of my favorite ways to use a treasured skein of sock yarn. Who wants to hide this awesome rainbow goodness under shoes and pants? At first I wasn't totally in love with the light blue "sky" portions of this self-striper, but now I can see that it really helps set off the rainbow and make the rainbow "pop." Totally in love with these ... so comfy and slouchy! Now I have to wait for cooler temps to put them to use!

Pattern: Graffiti on the Metro, a freebie! (link to my Ravelry project page)
Yarn: White Birch Fiber Arts "Nothing Says Screw You Like a Rainbow"
Needles: Size 2.5s
Mods:  Didn’t switch to smaller needles at the gusset. Instead, followed instructions and then decreased three stitches after putting the thumb stitches on waste yarn.
