I haz a mitten

Just one at this point, but better than none, I guess:

After giving up on the Knotty Gloves for this year, I thought I might make some quicker mittens to keep my hands warm until spring arrives (and of course, it was 70 degrees today--no faster way to change the weather than to knit something appropriate for it). I'm making these Chevalier Mittens with some lovely soft Malabrigo. mmmmm.

I also got another fantastic package from my Warm Ewe Up spoiler:

How gorgeous is that sock yarn?? A wonderful package, she really outdid herself this time!
