Testing 1, 2, 3

In December, I saw a post from knitting designer Kirsten Kapur of Through the Loops looking for test knitters for her new mitten Mod.  I loved the way it looked and signed right up.  She released the pattern this week, so I can take the wraps off mine.  All I can say is that stranded mittens are toasty warm.

And isn't the braided cast on neat?  It looks so much more complex than it really is.  I love the halo from the yarn -- it's Classic Elite Fresco, a mix of 60% wool, 30% baby alpaca, and 10% angora.  The fuzz is definitely the angora.
