Hm, I can't remember, have I ever told you that I particpated in the Malabrigo Shawl Knitalong in April? Well, I did, and I absolutely love the shawl I knitted in my all time favourite Malabrigo Sock. It's acutally a shawl I'm quite sure I'll wear (as you all know, I enjoy knitting shawls much more than wearing them), because I like the clean look of the stitch patterns and of course, I used some of my favourite colourway. :)
The Temperance Shawl, pattern available for free from Ravelry, here, calls for three skeins of fingering weight yarn. I had quite a bit left of the three skeins (about 60 g in total) and well, not only do I like to wear fingerless mitts, I also wanted to avoid that my bag with leftover yarn will fill up again right after I had knit up so many of my scraps. So... ta-dah!
I picked up design elements from the shawl and used the colours in reversed order on the second mitt to get these done. And I really like them! And in case somebody else needs a quick pattern for small amounts of yarn: Temperance Mitts is available as a free download from my Ravelry pattern store or here on my website.
