These are toasty warm, made from less than one skein of Brown Sheep Bulky, purchased at the Sheep Shed Studio. (By the way, since I used bulky yarn, I went down to a #6 needle) My sister tried them on when she was here, but soon realized that she's not a mohair kind of girl. All that itching and stuff. So she wore the Evangeline's (knitted with Malabrigo) home that weekend.
These are a super fast knit, in fact, I've already made another pair, knitted exclusively during meetings at work. I made the most recent pair long on the hand section, because my wrists don't get nearly as cold as my hands!
PS - No Brenda, I haven't forgotten about Sydney's handwarmers, the poor little orphan! They'll look somewhat like these. The same color. Who sends their child to school with only one glove, anyway?
PPS - Hey, it's my blogoversary!
