Knitting Project - Fingerless Mitts

I'm still sharing items that were hand knitted as gifts this past Christmas.  I couldn't share before as would spoil the surprise for those who were receiving and see my blog.

This Pattern came from the 2014 Knitting Calendar, which gave a new pattern for almost every day of the year.   This pattern was November 3 - 6, called Oxford Mitts by Amanda Lilley.  They have a fold-back flap that buttons and learned how to knit a button hole loop for the button.

Pattern called for sports weight yarn, 137 yds - 2 x 50g balls.  I used 1 x 100 gm ball of Berroco Vintage DK - machine washable blend of Wool, Acrylic and Nylon.  

Vintage buttons came from my mothers' button box.
