I’ve got this gorgeous green wool yarn from KnitPicks that I have been waiting to use on some mittens.  Since I had bought pretty blue yarn for the Vogue mittens, I wanted to do something different with the green yarn.  Originally I was going to use the Flirtation cable pattern from Vogue Knitting online, but I wanted something …..more.  Finally I decided to mix the Retwisted Taffy & small 2 cable patterns from Lion Brand Yarn on my mittens.  I’ve been referring to a variety of basic mitten patterns to get mine going.  So far it’s been gong good and the pattern is really turning out.  If anybody ever wants to knit it, they would have to use bigger needles.  I cast on to my size 3 needles and the mitten is fitting pretty snug on my hand  But we will see!
