I made these mittens using the Corazon pattern from Knitty.  I love them!!  They came out great and I couldn't be happier.  I made them a little shorter than the pattern called for, because they were coming out long.

Here they are!

You're a saint!  I would NOT have the patience.  I am so fed up with how SLOWLY I knit... then again though I've been doing it for years, I haven't done it in quite some time, so I'm a little out of practice.  Smiley

Very pretty!  I love them.  I'd be really happy to own those.  If they're for you, congrats, and if they are a gift for someone else, I am sure they will be loved.

Thanks!! Actually they were not too bad to knit, the only part was I would sometimes lost my place on the chart and have to go back and count stitches so I could find out where I was.  They are for me but my mom saw them and wants a pair for Christmas Smiley

I used Filatura di Crossa Zara.  It is a merino wool and its really nice to work with.  The pattern works up pretty quickly so I think you could get some done before Christmas!

Very pretty!  I love colorwork knits, but I'm too afraid to try it myself  Undecided
