Endpaper Mitts - Done and Done

Finished Mitts!

I started these to combat a chilly office, and after today's sleet and rain I rushed home to finish the second mitt. I think they turned out very well, and I'm looking forward to wearing them tomorrow now that the cold is back. Can't knit at stoplights (or grip the steering wheel well) while wearing the Anemoi Mittens!

Cuff Detail

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.

Project Recap:
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
