I found these fantastic reading mitts (Susie's Reading Mitts by Janelle Masters, the pattern is located here: http://web.archive.org/web/20090317070108/http://janelleknit.blogspot.com/2009/01/free-dancing-ewe-pattern.html) and they are also perfect for elderly people who seem to be cold when the rest of us are all hot. They are very fast to knit and look really nice. The pattern makes a set that is mid arm length but if you did 2 inches instead of the 5 inches for the arm length they would be closer to wrist length. I've got one of these little mitts done in a few hours and am now completing the second one. Mrs. Hunter will have her little mitts by Monday. She is going to love them. I did these using the Knitpicks yarn Swish DK in the color Cornflower. Looks like a cross between blue and purple almost a lilac.
