Simple Black Mittens

My sister asked for a pair of mittens with a splash of colour in them. I don't quite know what she wanted, but when I saw the pattern for these mittens, I thought they would be great.
Splash of Colour:
Yarn: Loops & Threads Wool to Wash in black and leftover yarn from another project
Needle Size: US 5 (3.75mm) DPNs
Pattern Source: Phoenix Mittens and Treads
I used two patterns to complete this because the yarn I wanted to use was worsted and the yarn called for in the Phoenix pattern was DK. So I made a lot of changes as I went.
These mittens will keep my sister nice and cozy this winter, I think she will really like them.
