Barn mittens were a recent topic on Fibernet. Here is a picture of mine.
The yarn is handspun from my own goats and sheep, and they are nice and warm. The motif doesn't show up too well against the mohair background (at least it didn't at first - it looks better after using them for a year), so I would probably do that differently next time. Also, I wasn't sure which way would be right side up for the reindeer, so I did it each one a different way (the motifs are front and back of each mitten). Still, they serve their purpose.
