Needle: 1s
Yarn: Misti International Hand dyed and Brown sheep Nature spun

2nd Mitten

That is exactly what I was going to write. They're beautiful, but my hands would never be able to do it.

I thought it would be too but it's not...they are just really warm and I added in a place in the back of them for your fingers. I would love to make another pair in green and white but I doubt I will :teehee:
