More Mittens

Definitely on a mitten roll!
This pair is unbelievably soft and warm and with that beautiful alpaca fuzz halo and the sheen of silk, the yarn couldn't be any prettier!

Yarn: Handspun 70% Silver Heathered Alpaca/ 30% Tussah Silk hand-dyed by Fat Cat Knits - Summer 2010 Mixed Blessing Club fiber. 2 ply worsted weight - 110 yards each colorway.
Needles: 2 mittens on 1 40" circular US 5 needle

in addition to size mod, also started one row lower than beginning of chart for a more finished starting edge. Reversed the edge stripe coloring to outline the diamonds and changed the cuff pattern to a 2 stitch wide stripe.
