I have been wanting to make a pair of mittens for awhile now. So, I decided to start with a super bulky pair so they'd go quick. A friend of mine made these Really Quick Mitts and I thought they were darling. I was expecting them to be hard, but they weren't at all. I followed the pattern exactly (which never happens) and they turned out great. I used Malabrigo Rasta in Indiecita. The are soft, cozy and perfect for winter.
