Nara mitts complete

How did everyone’s Christmas go?  I hope you all had a lovely and safe time.  Chris and I certainly did — we visited our families over a couple of days and vastly enjoyed the delicious food and the company of our loved ones!

A while back I saw a collection of 4 beautiful patterns on Ravelry called the Nara set, which includes a hat, a cowl,  boot liners, and fingerless mittens.  The set of patterns costs money but I bought it because each item is absolutely gorgeous!  I made the mitts first:

nara mitts 3A coworker of mine has constantly cold hands and she has to have her hands exposed most of the time to type.  She commissioned me to make her some fingerless gloves, and she wanted something either brown or purple.  The brownish-purple yarn here is Malabrigo’s Arroyo sport weight yarn (100% merino) in the colorway Coffee Toffee, and I already had it in my stash, so it was the perfect choice.

Oh and they only took 38 grams out of the 100 gram ball, so I can make another pair if I like!

Well that’s all for today.  Thanks for stopping by!  I’ll probably have an update on another project soon — my yarn for the Hunger Games hat that I mentioned in my last post has arrived and I can’t wait to get started!
