Hello from Scotland

I'm Natalie and I live near Edinburgh in Scotland. Murdo found the patterns for these fabulous mitts and gloves on ravelry and sent the link to me, and she went one better than that and bought me the pattern as a gift.
I have always been a one WIP at a time person, but I'm planning to knit the mitts in no particular hurry, to enjoy the process of seeing them evolve slowly, rather than rushing to get them finished. I'm thinking of a solid yarn, maybe red or purple or green, and a Shetlandy semi solid as a textural contrast. Probably the one called Porage Oats in my online shop (if I'm allowed to say that).
I don't think I've ever seen such a beautifully written pattern. It's a real work of art.
