Finished Thanksgiving Day 2006! These mittens (with of course a bit of MaryG in them) can be found in two of Elizabeth Zimmermann's books: Knitting Aroundand Knitter's Almanac. The directions in Knitting Around are missing how to finish the palm tip (! at least in my copy), but the full directions are in Knitter's Almanac. Both books should be on any knitter's shelf (or borrowed frequently from the public library!).
