Mittens to Match

This sort of looks like I made two pair of mittens.  It's only one pair, two views.
I've wanted to make these mittens since I first got the book, "Not Just Socks" by Sandi Rosner.  Unlike my usual deviation from patterns, I made them in the very same yarn.

Pattern:  Mittens, by Sandi Rosner.
Yarn:  Lana Grossa Meilenweit sock yarn, Colorway 5030.
Needles:  #1 (2.25mm) dpns

 And the Sockhead Hat to match...
Comments:  I washed the pair by hand and then decided to see how they would fare in the dryer.  Voilà!  They came out perfectly!  I didn't dry them completely, just left them in for about 20 minutes on low temperature with three dry hand towels to keep everything fluffy.
