Nancy K - buttoned fingerless mittens with cable pattern


This pattern is named after, and dedicated in memory of, one of my dearest knitting students who passed away in early January 2007.  I have been so fortunate to build the relationships I have as a knitting instructor and yarn store owner. I am often amazed that the act of knitting can touch so many lives in profound ways.  My memories of Nancy will always be of joyful hours around the knitting circle.

A portion from each sale of this pattern will be donated to breast cancer research.
