Corriedale Fingerless Mitts

I purchased this corriedale fiber from the CT Sheep and Wool Festival.  After spinning and plying, I ended up with almost 200 yards of fingering yarn.  This was the perfect amount to make my sister these fingerless mittens for her birthday.  I used size one needles for a really dense knitted fabric.  These mittens were knit from the top down with a thumb gussett decrease.  It was very interesting to work them up this way and it went very quickly.  My sister loved her birthday present.
