My parents gave me a fun book for my birthday last year, Crochet Ever After. It is full of projects inspired by fairy tales. I hoped to finish these Bad Apple Fingerless Mitts in time for the launch of Winter, the final book in my favorite sci-fi fairy tale series. The crochet pattern was fun to work, with its linked double crochet stitches. They solve everything I don't like about double crochet. But with Halloween interfering, I didn't finish the apples in time.
They are ready now, and I can wear them to the party for Stars Above, the book of related short stories, next month!
