In Progress: Moulin Rouge Mittens

One down, one to go. Mare gave me the pattern as a gift, knowing it’d be right up my alley. The yarn is Madeline Tosh sock in Tart (red) & Antler (cream). I enjoy the slight variations in tone, and I like the fact that the yarn is more of a light fingering (3 ply) than regular sock weight (4 ply) yarn. I’m also knitting this on 2mm needles, instead of the 2.25mm ones that the pattern calls for (since I have long yet narrow hands).
