Yarn-Over, Ligature… Same Difference.
lig·a·ture [lig-uh-cher, -choor] noun. — Printing. a character or type combining two or more letters. (Yarn overs aren't all that different)

For the first time ever, I got to knit with Noro. In this case, Noro Kureyon. It's a pretty rough wool, and I understand that most people choose it for the colours… I obviously chose it for the price. There were only two balls left in this colour, but I really do love how it knits up.

The pattern I used is Berry Hill Fingerless mittens by Liz (not me… another Liz), only I made them full mittens, rather than fingerless. I just can't think of a good reason why I would need more than one pair of fingerless gloves. Anyway, they're crazy warm, knit up in just a few days, and I really do love them.

    Crazy warm is good, especially on a day like today! It was freezing cold over here! I know it was a bit warmer in your area (I had to check the weather in order to start figuring out what to pack!), but still, I bet you really appreciated your mittens' warmth!

    Really nicely done, and I like them as full mitts instead of fingerless. Noro yarn is always a good start for a beautiful project, but it still takes a skilled knitter!

    I made a neckwarmer (the Noro Scarf, more or less)out of Noro Silk Garden - it really did soften up in the wash. (It's still a mite itchy if it's on my tender back-of-the-neck, but bearable.)

    Your mittens came out really prett!
