I've been on a bit of a fingerless mitten kick lately. Right now I'm knitting the Trilsea'n cabled mittens by Kalurah. I got the pattern on Ravelry. 

These lacey mitts by Sweaterbabe are really pretty too. I might try them next. 

What mitten and glove patterns have you tried and loved?

I've done several Fetchings (from Knitty) and just did Dashing (from Knitty) for my son. I've already cast on Dashing for my husband in City Tweed DK! yum
I have two colors of swish and I'm thinking of doing my first color work....mittens seem like a perfect way to start!
I read a good tip somewhere. I think it was in a sock project on Ravelry, but don't remember. I think it was a direction from a sock book. Anyway- it said to knit colorwork with the sock inside out. That way the stranding is less likely to be too tight- when it has to go around the outside of the sock instead of around the inside of the sock. Would work the same with mittens. I thought it sounded like a terrific idea- haven't tried it yet, though. Since I knit colorwork too tight, I think it would help!
Makes absolute sense to me, Peggy. ♥c
Fetching was fun to knit I knit a pair for my DD which she has already out grown. I currently have a thrummed mitten wip that I really need to finish soon.
I love to knit the Women's Convertible Mitten from Knit Picks for gift giving. They have been really been popular.http://www.knitpicks.com/patterns/Womens_Convertible_Mittens_Patter...
I wear my Ritzy knit in City Tweed the most http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Knit4many/ritzy I think it would be fun to try the Risti Mittens http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/risti-mittens but I have such a hard time picking out colors.
I have never knit a pair of mittens before! I have KP's Line by Line Mittens to Gloves pattern, but haven't looked at it yet. Once I get that down pat, I would like to try some with Cables and some colorwork ones too! This will be the perfect chance to give it a whirl. I have some CitiTweed DK to use up too!
That is a good pattern to start with.

ok, here goes... Hi, I'm Julie. I like knitting fingerless gloves that have finger holes in sock weight yarn. I've done three pairs in the last three months, and I've got two more pairs on the needles right now with plans for another three or four when I get done with these. This is one of the pairs I'm working on right now:

it's done in stroll kettle dyed in "eggplant" on size two circs. I think for my next pair, I'll do them in lace weight on size ones.
Those are quite loverly, Julienne. ♥cheryl
