Knit mitts!

Knitting
Last Thursday, I finished the thumbs on my mittens. Yesterday I finished my mitts. The yarn for the mittens was Gale Art - Goth Girl, and the mitts are from 716knits - Dirty Evil Tint. The mittens fit my hands perfectly. The mitts on the other hand... They are much more of a size for AmazonMink. I suspect a plot here, you see, since she is the one who gave me the pattern. Hrmmmm...

Note that I did follow the pattern for a "small" mitt. My hands are smothered.

These are small mittens. They actually fit my stumpy little hands.

I really do like them. I have another ball of yarn from which I'm going to try to get two pair of shorter mitts. I'm considering partial thumbs, as well.

Thanks! AmazonMink has a great eye for patterns that match the yarns. And since she is currently knitting Care Bear with Fangs, which is what I'm using for my next mitts, I know the yarn will look fabulous even if the mitts don't fit.
