I've been itching to make mittens for a long while now, but I find knitted mittens to be too thin for our winters out here, but fabric-lined ones to be too thick for early winter weather. So I chose the happy medium and made some crochet ones!!! And I couldn't be happier with how they turned out!

I was inspired by the old palmistry charts that people collect, and since my grandmother reads palms, I thought it would be an apt gift to work and make for her as well. I tried to keep it simple, since I'm no embroidery expert, but I'm quite happy with how the lines turned out - it's cryptic enough for a muggle to not understand, but covers enough to send some info. Tongue I made it to fit my hand, too, so all the mounts and lines fit my own hand. Smiley

I might write out the pattern, if anyone's interested. It's a basic mitten, but worked Back Loop Only, so the mitten fills out a bit more, and you get really neat little lines with it. If you make some, let me know how they turned out!!
