Another FO - Orla Mitts

Another completed project for the start of the week!  Despite very niggly wrists I cast off my Orla Mitts this weekend and after a wash and block I'm pretty pleased with the results (although still very critical of my tension whilst knitting colour work)

The finished mitts are beautifully warm despite the lack of fingers!  Given that it's yet again snowing outside I should probably consider making gloves with fingers but they're a bit like socks in my opinion - a necessary evil I would rather avoid!  I ended up using just 85m of the main colour and 25m each of the contrast colours so it's a great stash busting project if you have partial skeins lying around.
