New in my Knitting Basket

I just received this beautiful handpainted yarn from OffTheHooks lovely shop! The colours are even nicer in person. It's a blend of angora and merino wool and I think it'll be perfect for a pair of mitts. I'm currently working on a pair of fingerless gloves, and this yarn will make wonderfully warm and soft mitts. I've knit several pairs of mitts before, but I think I'm ready for a new pattern. Does anyone have a pattern for worsted weight yarn to recommend?

OffTheHooks is having a moving sale until March 14. Hurry on down to see what she has left--you won't be disappointed with the quality of her yarn and handmade goods!
