Secret Santa

I knit a pair of Malabrigo mittens for the person I was spoiling for secret santa this year. Our official reveal date is tomorrow but I'll be in California visiting family for Christmas so I outed myself today. She loved the mittens and even said I was the best SS ever but I need to disagree, I had the best SS ever. She spoiled me rotten.

Pattern: Warm Woolly Mittens by Theresa Gaffey pattern #51
Size: Adult Medium
Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Wool
Color: 1 skein each Natural & Shocking Pink
Needles: Size 4 bamboo DPN
Knit for: my Secret Santa spoilee

I'll be back sometime after Christmas blogging about all the hand knit gifts I gave this year!
Have a wonderful holiday!!

Those look great! Do you think you could squeeze a pair out of one skein? I've got one left over from a scarf I just made and I've been trying to think of a good way to use it. Happy Holidays!!
