Pattern: Aible Mittens by Kristi Geraci from Knitty Winter 2009
Yarn: Koigu Premium Merino
Needles: Size 1.5 DPNs
The holiday knitting just keeps coming! This is my first pair of mittens, and I must say, they're a nice alternative to socks, for sock yarn. This pattern is good - not terribly difficult, but the cables keep things from being too boring.
I really like this yarn. It's lovely to work with, and I really like the colorway. It's mainly gray, but has a nice purply undertone that keeps in warm, and gives it a little interest. I'll definitely keep Koigu in mind if I need to restock the sock yarn stash.
