So project no. 2 for 2016 was a pair of mitts my sister asked for. I found the pattern for them from on Purl Soho's website but adapted them so a) I only used one colour and b) I didn't bother knitting the thumb part.
It's a lovely and easy pattern to follow and so I might try a few more variations of this - perhaps stripes?
I used Cascade fingering weight yarn for these mitts in Jet.
