This post will not be put into the blog until after Christmas, because this project is a surprise for my sister.

Christmas Mittenv2

The finished project is a pair of Elizabeth Zimmerman's Norweigan Mittens, with the alternate cuff pattern, and the Spruce tree pattern on the hands. They were knitted with KnitPicks Wool of the Andes, 2 skeins each of evergreen and cloud. I had about a quarter of each skein left over when I was finished. I really like these, and they're very warm! However, my colorwork still needs better tension. The green on the patterns was obviously looser than the white; it's very puffy. I'll wash and block these before I give them to sister, and that may help.
