I can't seem to start another big project (for example the cardigan that I wanted to knit for the summer knit along, starting in August and have had the yarn for since probably June ;-) but I've been good using up leftovers. I knit the Foxy Hat last December and had a lot of orange and about half a ball of beige still in my stash afterwards. Orange is a colour I rarely wear and the yarn wasn't anything special. Nevertheless it seemed enough for a pair of mittens.
I decided to give the BonBon Mittens from TinCanKnits a try, since I already had the pattern. For the cuff I used someof the beige yarn and then I changed to orange. They were very quickly done, including the thumb which I knit with beige again. I felt like knitting really warm mittens, so I added a lining mitten (I copied that from the Snowfling Mitts). I didn't line the thumbs, they seemed too small and frankly I was just too lazy to do it. They are a bit stiffer with the extra layer but really warm and toasty.
I had a lot of fun knitting these mittens and I might knit another pair sometimes soon.
