This pattern was so much fun to knit that I've already cast on another pair for a Christmas present. Sometimes I wish you all could feel the squishy factor in a project through the photos on this blog. These mitts are super squishy and while I referred to the pattern frequently, it was 'an easier than I thought it would be' pattern.
Sadly I cannot tell you much about the wool that I used. I bought it at a fiber festival and the spinner didn't give any personal details to her skeins except that it was sport weight and romney wool. I was delighted to knit and find little bits of hay in the spinning, a rustic wool but oh so soft and springy.
I cannot wait to wear them. Yes! They are for me instead of a gift for someone else. I also have some wool left over to maybe make a hat.
