these are a simple dp needle pattern of shetland mittens from our ewe buttercup.  V. soft, the white on her neck really pops when randomly spun up.  Photos of Buttercup, her roving and the finished mittens.

Her wool is so gorgeous it doesn't need to be dyed! Wonderful!

Buttercup is quite a beauty, and the mittens you made are wonderful.

Now if only I could find a way to knit with all the fur that my cat sheds...
