Leafy mittens

I finished making some very pretty green mittens with a textured leaves design. I feel it's the yarn that really makes this project, which is Lang Jawoll magic degrade sock yarn, in a shade sold as "parakeet".


It was worked on quite small needles and rather fiddly as a pattern, but I like the results. The texture is achieved with knit, purl, and slipped stitches. Very leafy.
