snail mittens frontside

These lovely mittens are going out in the mail to my mom tomorrow for her birthday. I really want to keep them, especially since I seem to have misplaced my pair of norwegian mittens... I'm not ready to say lost yet, I have hope that they can still turn up.

 

details:

Pattern: Norwegian snail mittens by Adrian Bizilia / Hello Yarn from the Knitters Book of Yarn by Clara Parks

Yarn: Tree Frog Alpaca Melange sport weight in colors 910, 921 and 909.

Lining yarn: Bristol yarn gallery Buckingham (alpaca/silk) fingering weight

Needles: 2.25mm (1's) and 2.00mm (0's)

Mods: I was getting a crazy row gauge on these so sadly I had to cut out some of the lovely spirals.
