John has a new pair of mittens! And he loves them! They only took two days to knit up and that's only because I had to go to work.
They're not perfect. There are some imperfections in one glove and on the fingertip of the second glove, I dropped a k2tog without realizing it until John held up a mittenend finger with a hole at the tip. *sigh* It's been sutured and is fine now.
All in all, I'm happy with how these mittens turned out. The pattern is more than a little confusing in a couple of spots, but once I got through the first mitt, the second was a breeze. I can see making more of these. They're just so warm and cozy (according to John).
Now, I'm going to knit mittens for myself. I have the pattern, I have the yarn, I've started the knitting, and I left the pattern at work today. That's just the kind of day it's been.
