I bought this beautiful handspun yarn at a spinner's fair in Japan and made a shrug out of it before realizing that shrugs are stupid.  I frogged it and modified a basic mitten pattern to add a cable panel and these were born




I'm really pleased.  They feel like they will never wear out.

Those are very pretty!  It's amazing what one little cable can do.

These are so great! I only wear knitted mittens and hats in the winter time, so i could def' see myself sporting these(green is one of my fav colours too). I especially LOVE the cables in them.

Your mittens are gorgeous!  Love the color and the shaping of the tops.  Which pattern did you use?

Mistake?  No... it's an Unexpected Design Element.  I put it there on purpose.  *ahem*
