This shot shows my only (intentional) modification--regular cast on instead of tubular. I tried the tubular, but it was too difficult for me to pick up the stitches with the smooth black yarn. I have to admit that I didn't really try that hard--I was too eager to get to the colorwork. Sorry about the dog hair--as soon as I put the mitts on as a pair, I was attacked by ferocious miniature dachshunds.
Yarn: GGH Merino Soft in black and royal blue (I don't know if the colors have real names). 1 ball of each, with plenty of leftovers--maybe enough for another mitt when I lose one of these!
Pattern: Eunny Jang's Endpaper Mitts
Time to knit: about two weeks
Needles: Size 1 knitpicks circular, Magic Loop style
