altered knit "bella" fingerless mittens = done!

TGIF!  I've never been more excited to see a weekend.  Well, that's not true, but it's still pretty fantastic that I get to sleep in until 8AM tomorrow.  It's the little things in life, isn't it?

I'm just popping in to show you this pair of altered "Bella Mittens" for a custom order:





As you can see, I modified the original pattern (located here) a little bit.  The mittens no longer have a horseshoe cable because I separated them and added a 1x1 rib between them.  I also nixed the top of the mitten and changed it to half-fingers - something I'd never done before, so I'm kinda proud :)

I really love how these turned out, and I hope the person they're going to enjoys them as much as I do!  It was definitely a learning experience, and a fun one at that.  Every time I fudge a pattern and happen to do something correctly, I feel like I can conquer the world :P

Have a great weekend, everyone!
