New Pattern - Finally!

I showed a glimpse of these fingerless mitts in my previous post - the first prototype is what I had on the needles last August when we went to the lake, and is what you can see in the picture there. 

I've been working on these off and on for about 3 years, and since my last post, I have finished both the prototype and the written pattern, the pattern has been test-knit, and it is available on Ravelry.  I'm so excited!  This is the first pattern that I decided to charge for from the start (I recently decided to charge a nominal amount for my previously free Mayday Wrist Distaff pattern on Rav as well - it's only $1, so I don't think it will break anyone's bank). 

I call them Lakeshore Fingerless Mitts (Ravelry link - the pattern is also available in my Etsy shop, Mandarella Knits).  I feel like a new parent.

Take a look:
