FO: Watercolour Mitts

I had a lovely little thank you present the other week. It was a set of 4 mini skeins from Skein Queen, which in my excitement to knit with them, I forgot to photograph. I pondered a bit on what to do with them and thought they were too special to use as part of another project so I designed a little fingerless mitt pattern which I hope shows them off to their best.

I split each skein in half so I could use up as much of the yarn as possible. 3 of the colours were of a similar type and I've marked where the colour changes are on the photograph. 

The stitch pattern was just purling when I got to a darker bit of the pattern and a turned hem for the start, moss stitch cast off on the hand part and linen stitch on the thumb. There's a whole mix and match of stitch patterns going on but think it adds to the whole arty feel of the mitts. 
Just need some cool wintry weather to try them out, now!
