Details: "Banks" as it appears in "Knitting Yarns: Writers on Knitting" are fingerless mittens that have beaded cuffs which add a touch of class. There are over 250 beads knit into the fabric for each mitten which uses the magic loop method of knitting in the round. Mae Banks, my Grandmother (and a knitter), was a woman who taught me to enjoy the little things in life that bring you happiness
