An Old Newfie Standby

Just a quick post to show the first of my mitts made with a combination of commercially and hand spun yarns.

It's still thumbless (the opening is on the other side). The pattern is the classic Newfoundland mitts with my own modifications (I'll let you in on those in my next post). Ridiculously simple to make, for all that they look impressive, and fantastic for colour-changing yarn. Can't believe that the soft pinks and mauves were nothing but fluff a few days ago! And doesn't it match the background of almost-in-bloom thyme well?
