I've been wanting to do something with this Manos del Uruguay for the longest time. This "Autumn" colorway is not in my usual teal/blue/purple groove but I was really attracted to it when I saw it in my LYS. Nice warm colors - perfect for mittens!
I haven't made a pair of mittens since I was a kid (12 maybe?) which was a looong time ago. I had actually forgotten I even made them until my mom reminded me about them a few months ago. A horrible pink acrylic, if I remember correctly. (I'd love to see them again just to see what kind of work I did on them.) Anyway I figured it was about time to make another pair, if for no other reason than to see if I can improve on those pink ones!
