I took part in National Knit Mittens Month (NaKniMiMo) over on Ravelry this month.
While the hedgehog mittens took me longer than I expected, I did manage to finish two more pair of mittens.
The Winter Wonderland Mittens from Classic Elite.
I used the yarn called for by the pattern - Classic Elite Fresco. It's a cuddly soft mix of wool, alpaca and angora. I really enjoyed this yarn, and the mittens are already getting a fuzzy angora halo.
Ben asked for another pair of fingerless mittens.
I used some handspun coopworth/sari silk yarn that has been aging in the stash.
These are so quick and easy - long tubes of ribbing with large button holes for the thumbs.
I made five pair for my co-workers holiday gifts, all from handspun.
