OOOOH, Malabrigo! I was right, it makes the warmest, softest mittens ever! Thanks to my super SP7 pal, Batty, my hands will be so warm this winter. And I just got a new black winter coat that will show off these beautiful green mittens. Knit at a tight gauge to ward off wind (and pilling), I started out with a two by two rib at the cuff and carried the ribbing up the back for a snug fit. I don't like floppy mittens. Nothing fancy--I let the yarn do all the talking. And I have enough leftovers to make a third mitten should I be so moronic as to lose one. It's happened before. Bring on Winter!
