Mittens for Kittens

Remember the three little kittens who lost their mittens and they began to cry?
It never hurts to have back ups...

Pattern: NHM #5
Source: Selbuvotter - Biography of a Knitting Tradition by Terri Shea
Yarn: Brown Sheep Nature Spun Sport
Needles: dpn's - 2.75 mm

Last winter, I did a few pairs of mittens from Charlene Schurch's Mostly Mittens book. Her mitten and sock books are, to me, invaluable additions to any knitter's library. Her basic instructions for garment construction are excellent so by the time I opened Terri Shea's Selbu book (also excellent in all respects), I was able to simply pick up the needles and follow the graphs with ease.
