Finished my first two pairs of mittens ever, both for Dulaan.  The navy and grey are cascade 220.  The pink stripes are from some Tahki New Tweed I had in the stash.

This pattern came from a book... The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns by Ann Budd.  I really recommend it.  It's got basic patterns for a few different things (mittens, gloves, hats, tams, sweaters, vests, socks, and scarves) with charts for different gauges and sizes.

These turned out really nice. I agree with Knit This. Mittens scare me. lol. But thanks for recommending the book. If I ever pluck up my courage, I'll know where to look for a good pattern.  Smiley

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

I love love love this book. I'm making my first pair of gloves from it using some Jaeger merino. The instructions are clear and easy to understand. Plus, it has all of the increases,decreases,bind offs, etc the patterns call for explained in the back.
