I had printed out the free pattern for these "Snowdrift Mittens" months ago, but noticed that there seems to be a problem with the file and my computer won't let me download it from the site. You might try contacting the owner of the site ... but if you would like the pattern and can't get your hands on it, send me an email and I may be able to hook you up ;0)
Sadly, these still didn't use up all my Peruvian Alpaca stash! Seriously, the yardage on that stuff is unbelievable. I used less than 2 balls of the teal and 1 ball of celery.
Oh, and the celery tip on the second thumb? It makes me want to cry! Not because I came so close to finishing with the teal yarn I had, but because they remind me of the mitts my grandmother lovingly knit for us...it was not unusual for them to have different coloured thumbs, or tops! My grandmother was a very practical person and well she did knit hundreds of pairs of mittens and socks for her 24 children's children and grand-children. She was an amazing woman ;0)
Now what to do with the 2 balls of celery and 2 balls of gray I am STILL stashing !?!!
