FO: Two-needle mittens
I knitted these for me, using Christmas money that I was told to use at the LYS! The pattern is from Plymouth- I knitted my mom a scarf using the same pattern. The yarn is Plymouth Suri Merino. They are very soft. I'm not totally thrilled with how they turned out- using dpns is on my list of things to do in 2006- I think I would like traditional mittens using those better. Still, I love the color of these and they feel good!

I am smitten with your mittens. These look very nice.

The seam didn't bother me too much, it was the shape- more long and rectangular than I'd like. The top was not as rounded as you'd see in a mitten made with dpns. Hmmmm.........I hadn't thought about doing mittens with two circs..............I think I have another project to do now!

Those are pretty.
