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.
