Dyed by DaniDo Mittens

I loved the "Fireweed" bulky wool sample from Dyed by DaniDo and decided a little pair of mitts was perfect. Here they are all finished.
.

There was 20 yards of the sample in my May Phat Fiber Box and each mitten used 9 yards for the colour bits. With the 2 left over yards, I made a mitten string to keep the pair from being separated. The gray was some miscellaneous worsted wool I had in my stash. I don't know how much I used. These should fit my 5 yr old niece!

oh, they are so pretty! I think your niece will love them! Good call on adding the string- I lost one of my hand knit mittens once, and I was so mad at myself. string is always necessary.
