I used the beautiful cormo wool from Elsa Wool Company, which was sent to me by my Ravelry friend from Colorado (thanks again!!!), to knit myself both a pair of fingerless mitts and a hat (and I still have a bit of wool left!).
For the fingerless mitts I used this easy pattern by Margaret Smith and I made some slight modifications to it (like I added a thumb).
I'm so pleased with my mitts and hat. They feel warm and comfortable and I'm looking forward to wearing them a lot!
