Fingerless Finished Objects

A client sent me the pattern for these Fingerless Mitts and I thought they would look so good in Silk Garden colour 269 that I set out to make them. Surprisingly, it only took 1 skein of silk garden, which was cool considering I added an inch to the wrist area.  Next time, I'd like to make the palm portion an inch longer to accommodate my longer hands. I also added an extra stitch to the thumb pick-up to keep the pattern consistent, which turned out fine, the thumb is not too big. 

I'm thinking about doing these again in either the Manos Maxima or Malabrigo Worsted .... or both ;-) When I do I'll use a 4mm needle.
