Note from Heather: I made myself something! I had only 1 skein of the striped yarn as that is all the store had. And it was $16 a skein! I used leftover Cashmerion Aran for the wrists and I'm glad I did otherwise I wouldn't have had enough yarn for the thumbs. I did have to use some of the Cashmerino Aran for the thumbs. This is Janet's Warmest Mitten pattern. This also happened to be the 50th completed project for 2010. My goal was achieved!
