Fuzzy mittens!

Baby Alpaca Mittens
http://www.ravelry.com/projects/firecat/basic-mitten-pattern-2


Basic Mitten Pattern by Ann Budd, Knitters Handy Book of Patterns


Made for mom
Size women's medium


Needle: US 5 / 3.75 mm circular needles (one Knitpicks nickel, one Denise)
Yarn: Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky
1 skein turquoise, 1/3 skein gray


Notes:
My first attempt didn't work because I was between gauges, and because I attempted to be clever when picking up stitches for the thumb, and because my idea of striping turquoise and gray just made the mitten look dirty. I frogged and restarted with smaller needles (getting a solid 5 spi) and made turquoise mittens with gray cuffs. My mom loves them!

The pattern is good except that it leaves a huge gap at the base of the thumb that you have to sew up.
