Fairisle is not my strongest suit especially when the floats are a bit longer than 3 or 4 stitches but it was definitely worth it for these mittens. They are lined so they are toasty warm (but it also means you have to knit a whole other mitten to go inside the one you already knit). These have been dragging on for a while but that cold spell really got me to work on them since I didn’t have any exceptionally warm mittens for my hands but now I do. They also are pretty good at keeping the wind from nipping through which is no small feat for knitted mittens with no felting.

I’ve received several compliments on them including some from random people that have no idea they were hand knit!
