They're knit using Miss Babs' lovely, soft and fuzzy yarn, Tierno in colors Coventry and Winter. The idea was to create a cozy, warm set of mittens with two layers, but worked in a simple way and with no extra seaming in the end.
The result is a smooth, seamless joint between the white liner and the light-blue outer mitten, created using a provisional cast-on, which allows you to pick up your cast-on stitches and work in the other direction, once the liner has been made.
I'm very excited about the finished mittens, which are thick and warm and very soft and cozy, just as I wanted them to be. The mittens have a cable pattern on the back of the hands - I know; I'm a sucker for cables - but the rest is pure stockinette, including the liners, which are knit from the right side, and then later turned inside out for when the outer mittens are added.
