Finished! I love these! As soon as Adrian makes the pattern available, you must all make a pair. I test knit these for her in a commercially available yarn, Berrocco’s, Ultra Alpaca Light. Which is lovely, just like it’s heavier version, Ultra Alpaca, which I used to knit my Aftur Sweater, except it doesn’t come in as many colors, but we can hope!
I used Kidsilk Haze for the lining, held doubled, on US 3 needles, and people it is SO soft and SO fluffy, I want to knit a cocoon of it and hibernate until spring.
My favorite thing is the way it lays inside the mitten, a lovely peek of a perfect limey green.
