Vertical Weave Fingerless Mittens and Flatbread

So I've been MIA for quite awhile. I returned to school in the fall and have been super busy. I've still had some time to knit, but I haven't found the time or motivation to post anything until now.

So lets play catch up, starting with...

Vertical Weave Fingerless Mittens

The Pattern: Vertical Weave Fingerless Mittens by Me!
Size: 8 inches around forearm, 7 inches around hand, and 2 1/4 inches around the thumb
The Yarn: 1 ball of Cascade Yarns 220 Wool in Teal 9420 (220yds/201.2 m) or 1 ball of Paton's Classic Wool Merino in Dark Gray 000225 (223yds/203.9m)
Needle size: Size 7/4.5 mm

Started: 10/22/10
Finished: 10/23/10

This is two pairs. Not a pair made up of one teal and one gray, although now that I'm thinking about it wearing one of each color would be cool. It only takes about half a ball to make one pair

When I started this project in October I took detailed notes because I was going to post the instructions. Then I put the instructions in a really safe place. Which has proved to be so safe that nine months later even I can't find them. And unfortunately I gave these away, so I can't even use the mittens to jog my memory.

The mittens are pretty much a tube until the thumb. Then, like most mitten or glove patterns, there's some increases to add the thumb gusset. The vertical stitch pattern came from Knit Stitches & Easy Projects Beginner's Guide from Leisure Arts.

No knead flatbread

This is no knead garlic cheese flat bread. The recipe is from the King Arthur website. This bread is soooo easy to make. You mix the ingredients, let the bread rise, pour into a sheet pan and bake. I cut them into strips and dipped in marinara sauce. Yum.
