My mittens are done. Just in time for the next winter season.
These mitts are worked sideways and sewn on the edges. I am not a fan of seaming and that showed with my first mitt. It was knitted and mutilated (not seamed) with a bulky yarn. Not having enough yarn to re do it, I (a) had to switch yarns, (b) gain back lost confidence. I didn't take me long to do both. Mittens no. 2 and no. 3 were done fast.
Overall, this is a well written pattern; suitable for beginners. I assume an advanced knitter can modify the pattern to work the mitts in the round.
Have a great weekend! Don't forget to laugh out loud.
