I just finished these and wanted to share.
The pattern is Evangeline from MagKnits
The yarn is Plymouth Royal Llama Silk, and it is beautiful and soft, and the silk makes it nearly perfect. If I didn't knit it up, I would have just petted it. I won it in a Ravelry contest from my LYS, Knitty Cat. Thanks Ann!
This was a relatively quick knit, it took me about 3 hours to finish each mitt. I like that it used only one skein of yarn (I had 12 yards leftover from a 103-yard skein.), and that it uses worsted weight, of which I have plenty on hand. I think they'd be great gifts, since the cables make them a little fancy.
