i love this yarn more than life itself. it is so soft and cuddly. i'm not sure what's going to happen with this skein, other than that the mittens will be lined with extra long cuffs and maybe some big squishy cables and a texture pattern on the palm side. i am thinking i will spin some alpaca for the lining. i might not finish them in time for this winter but there's always more winters to come.
