Finished Object: Bird Mittens



Bird Mittens, pattern by Hanneke Sieben on Ravelry

Yarn: Spotlight Basics Merino in red, and Spotlight Basics 8ply in white (one of each was just enough).
3.25mm needles.

I really enjoyed this pattern, although getting the right gauge was a pain. I'm in love with the little birds everywhere, and the palm looks kinda like feathers - its a very well-thought-out pattern. I recommend doing the picot hem too, it looks really sweet.
The person these are for is a big sweetie too (one of my best buds, whose in Paris right now). They're going to be her Xmas present, so better post them off soon!
