knit night review and two colour baby mittens

Last night was my local knit night.
I had a great time as usual. I met this wonderful woman who crochets the finest most gorgeous doilies and things. She brought in a beautiful bedspread, some lamp shades and a bunch of doilies. She even had the most amazing fillet crochet runner; it was of a lady bathing surrounded by cherubs, perfect! And using a much smaller thread and hook than I have yet.

Also last night I passed on a pattern I designed.
One of the ladies just recently had two grandchildren, and wanted to knit them mittens, but she wanted colourwork. Well I told her I would look around and see if I could find anything like what she described, and if I couldn't I would make her one.

Well I couldn't so I made her one.

I figured I would pass it on to all of you as well.
It hasn't been fully test knitted yet, I made a small lopsided prototype when I was writing it, but have made several changes to the pattern since then:

Thank you so much for sharing your pattern. I have been looking for baby mitts to fit my teeny five month old granddaughter( with teenier hands than a usual five month old) and I wanted to do colorwork( but didn't want to come up with an idea myself).
Now to decide on colors...
