Sneaky Sneak #2

One Fiddlehead mitten down, less than 1/2 to go on the 2nd. These are for my Grandma. Since she's in her 80's I think the chances of her reading this post and spoiling the surprise are slim to none.

Details:
Pattern: Fiddlehead Mittens from Hello Yarn
Needles: Size 3 US. I used 2 circulars for the first mitten and one 9" circular for the second. I am totally and completely in love with the 9" circular for socks and mittens. I think I want one in every conceivable size. It's the best thing since sliced bread. Seriously.
Yarn: Frog Tree Alpaca sport weight - mmmm.... alpaca....
Modifications: I've decided not to do a lining for these mittens. They are a touch small (seems I knit extremely tight when I'm doing colorwork) and I'm not sure how well they will fit if I do a lining. Plus, my Grandma really would only be wearing them from the house to the car and back. She doesn't spend a ton of time outside in the winter anymore.
