pattern: Improvised (but influenced obviously by having read mitten patterns before)

yarn: Lorna’s Laces . Shepard’s Worsted . Powder Blue + Rowan . Kidsilk Haze (dyed by me to match)

This was going to be a 16 Cable hat to match the ones I knit for me and my mom, but it was decided my grandma needed mittens much more, and got frogged. Worked them up one a day apiece. Ribbing is just the Worsted, and the kidsilk is added only for the body of the glove. Definitely a couple things I would change. The top bind-off looks a bit peaky (the technique [here] would help from now on) and I wish I’d made the top of the hand slightly larger than the palm. They’re a bit wonky but do the job.
