What a great instant gratification project. This was my first time knitting with Malabrigo, and I really enjoyed it. I will have a hard time giving these away--but I know how quick and easy it would be to make more. Maybe everyone will be getting them for Christmas next year (maybe not).

I used just 1/2 a skein. The mitts weigh 44 grams (with ends for weaving snipped) and I have 50 grams left--should be enough for another pair.
