I saw this pattern on helloyarn.com and knew I had to knit it. So here they are:

I neglected to check gauge (of course) so they ended up too small for me, so they're going to charity instead. (I just hope some poor kid doesn't get beat up for his uber-cool mittens!)

Now all I have to do is knit the matching hat!

Those look great!! You did an excellent job!

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

Those are nice!!  That's some masterfully done fair isle.  How generous of you to give them away, I know I have a hard time letting go of a lot of my creations, even if I don't use them.

I work in a knit shop, and the owners adopted their kids from Khazakhstan, and decided to do what they do best for the kids they couldn't adopt: knit. And they recruited others to do it, too. And since I can't wear these mittens (and know noone here to who can) might as well send them to someone who can get some really good use out of them (I'm told they'll be shared between the kids and passed down for years- which makes me very happy!)

Thanks for the compliment on the technique! It took a little to get into the swing of it, but I eventually evened out. It helps that I've had the great good fortune to take a color-stranding class w/ Anna Zilbourg- they wouldn't look near as nice if I hadn't!

I have resolved to try again on bigger yarn and needles (and swatch this time!), and hopefully they'll fit. Or I'll just get distracted by some yargyle sock.
