I followed the yarn recommended on the pattern, Debbie Bliss Cashmerino, and picked a pretty (and versatile) charcoal gray. This was delightful yarn with which to work!

I am truly pleased with how these mitts turned out. Now, my oldest has requested a pair in pink =)
I have two other works-in-progress in my craft basket: my prayer shawl and my lace scarf. I’d like to finish (or at least make some major progress) on these before I start anything new …
