a cozy, soft yarn enhances the squishy cabled goodness of these warm-but-lightweight mitts. the fine fabric is dense enough to keep out the cold and still allow plenty of hand dexterity. the heavier cabled fabric along the back makes a nice windbreaker and adds plenty of textured interest.

the yummy merino/angora handspun yarn for this project was a provided by cheryl, whose beautiful spinning fiber and yarn can be found in her etsy shop, NewHueHandspuns.
thank you very much to rachel, for her hard work in making the patterns the best they can be.
