Claire of NH Knits podcast was inspired by my Selbu Peace&Love mittens to arrange a colourwork mitten KAL in her Ravelry group. I decided that would be a good opportunity to make a pair of mittens that someone else had designed, and I chose Giraffes at Sunset Mittens by Erica Mount, which had been a favourite pattern since the first time I saw it.
