Finished mittens!

So my mittens have been mailed off to my mitten friend. I hope she likes them.

Some stats... I used 1 ball of Jamieson Shetland yarn, purple. I think it's around 30g. I bought 2 so now I have leftover purple yarn. I had 30g of green (Jamieson and Smith, not to be confused with Jamieson) and have 10g left, so it used 20g. I guess if you were making bigger mittens it would have used more like 30g. of the pattern colour and maybe 50 of the background.

With the stash yarn I used for this project and the stash yarn I used for the test knit, my stats for 2007 are 3 FO's, 69 g. of yarn used.

A LYS near me is going out of business. I bought a ball of the same colour, different dye lot, as some blue yarn I had that I was thinking of using for the dinosaur sweater. I did a test swatch with the two dye lots the other night while we watched Nightwatch, which was kind of a creepy thriller like Silence of the Lambs (and yes, I did have to look away a few times and say "Can I look now?"). You can't really tell the difference in the swatch, so I can use the 2 balls I already had for the body and the new ball for the arms.

The mittens are gorgeous.

Wasn't there an English remake of that movie? Which version did you watch? I really like that movie, very scary.
