Diamond textured fingerless mitts

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Knitpicks.com Link to website or photo www.knitpicks.com/patterns/free/diamond- What are you most proud of? Making something to make my Mom, 90 and whose hands are always cold, a little more comfortable. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Avoid plastic needles-their "stickiness" complicates use of magic loop method. Otherwise a fairly simple project. Also, observe how the gansey pattern (purl bumps) relate one row to the next, it'll help avoid mix-ups following the chart. Makes a great portable project. Once you've done one, the second goes much faster.
