Notes

Really, really, reaaaally soft, warm mittens. Love.

This project got waylaid by the arrival of spring (knitting fuzzy mittens in warm weather was not so appealing) but I finished them in the fall and very quickly started wearing them. In fact, I forgot to get photos until well into January!

The angora in the yarn does pill a bit at wear points (specifically, where the thumb meets the palm) but the pills pull off easily and the soft halo is more than worth it. Actually, I’m surprised at how well these are wearing, given how cloud-like the yarn is!
