Finish Line: Winter Twilight Mitts

My first of two Ravelympics 2010 projects is done! Here are my Winter Twilight Mitts, finished yesterday thanks to the chance opportunity of getting away alone (gasp!) to a nearby coffee shop. It's amazing how productive I can be when not being impeded by my kids!

Yarn: Knit Picks Palette, Blue Note Heather and Black, 1 skein each
Needles: US 1.5 magic loop; US 1 dpns (for BO and starting the thumb)
Notes: Decreased 8 sts evenly on the round right before the 2x2 ribbing begins on the mitten top (56 sts total) After taking pics, my mitts checked in at "Spa Kookaburra" to receive a softening treatment. I tried them on first thing today post-treatment... Love them! BTW, I just had to paint my nails dark blue to match :-)
