I would probably never knit a mitt using anything without wool in it just for the warmth factor alone.
I love playing with colour, whether it's yarn, dye, fiber or paint and decided right now that I would like to produce some mittens.
My favourite knitting projects are sweater, socks, mittens, and fingerless gloves. Scarves are too boring because there is no shaping usually and I'm not into shawls too much-I'd rather weave them.
One of my favourite books for mittens is Robin Hansens 'Favorite Mittens'.
Here is a project I made from that book.

And these are Deep Ocean Mitts from 'Alterknit Stitch Dictionary' by Andrea Rangel.
