Sometimes you see a project on Ravelry and decide to try it out, there and then!
The Log Cabin Mitts pattern by Karen Templer of the Fringe Association was one such project.
I had two part-skeins of Drops Nepal in my stash, so knitted the colour blocks in such a way that the yarn was evenly distributed. The original pattern shows lots of possible permutations, and you could use as many colours as you want.
The pattern is free and I can definitely recommend it to you. Let me know if you give it a go!
