Thanks to Elizabeth and Sandra for the yarn. I had fun with these; they just sort of "happened," depending on whim.
When tying the mittens together, I like to crochet a long chain with the same yarn and use it to make a big bow. That way, if the mitten ever needs darning, the recipient can unravel the chain for that purpose. Or a little girl can use the chain as a colorful hair tie. Fun!
