So I've finished my lovely warm mitts! Plenty of the silk garden left - might make something with which to hang my ipod round my neck. Or not!
Very pleased with the colours and shape. If your arms are not spindly, you might want larger needles or more stoitches - this fabric is relatively stiff, I think larger needles would be fine.
A calorimetry - not for me, of course (not my colour!) In fact, the colour is a deeper, better, purpler pink than this, but oh well, not going to take another pic, that's for sure!
