Mittens in silk alpaca yarn – I’m considering knitting these but I’m not sure… I have two skeins of pink and one of snot green… what do you think? Maybe I should try looking for another pattern and make the mittens with stripes instead… Also found Aili’s Mittens via Ravelry, they are sure pretty too… Did you know I hate looking for knitting patterns? It’s so time consuming and difficult.
