Geek mittens with Tux

I found this pattern on a link from ravelry. I just had to modify them a bit to make them fit the size needed when knitting with this thin yarn and needles 2,5.I used multicoloured yarn, the same as for the last two pairs of mittens, and was very happy with the result. This pair of mittens are a gift - so I can not tell for who, but a slightly geeky girl I know well.

Knitted gloves in thin woolen multicoloured yarn

Last Time I was in London I stopped by I Knit london to buy some knitting equipment, and I noticed this Purple, red, orange yarn in wool. Zauberball. I just knew I needed some of that yarn. So far I have made two set of gloves with the yarn. The dark set is sized for Sofie (surprise, surprise the young lady lost several knitted items at school). The lighter pair is for a niece.
