More mittens...

flip tops, originally uploaded by gradschoolknitter.

Finished the sleeves to my sweater on Saturday and need to block them out. I was helping out at the store and had nothing else with me to knit during slow times so I got started on a pair of mittens for a new friend. Just in time since winter has finally decided to show up around these parts! First one is done and the second is started.

Pattern: Mostly out of my head, somewhat loosely based on my Convertible Cabled Mittens. Only sans-cables and with a lot heavier yarn.
Yarn: Cascade Eco Alpaca (soooo soft) and Jojoland Ballad (for a little bit of colour interest... it's the darker brown).
Needles: US 7, 2 circs
