Mock cable mitts

Looks like I haven't updated in quite some time, so thought I'd better upload some pics. I still have about 10 pairs of socks OTN, as well as a couple of scarves and hats. They'll get finished someday!

The red fingerless mitts are made from a pattern from Hearthstone Knits, and the green ones are from the same pattern, but using different yarn and tweaking the pattern a bit. The red yarn is Laines du Nord Cashsilk, 50% merino extrafine, 25% silk, 25% cashmere, and it is so nice and soft. I'd love to have a sweater from it, but that would be too costly.

The green yarn is a bit lighter in weight called Berroco Inca Gold, 80% Merino wool, and 20% silk. I completely used up the red yarn except for about a foot! I needed two skeins for the green, and have some left over-*maybe* enough for a hat. Next pair might be navy or periwinkle. I have the yarn, just need the time!
