Pretty much the first thing I ever learned how to make is mittens. (well, if you don't count that scarf I made for my teddy bear when I was 6. ... and I don't!)
So, when I saw this pattern, I figured, EASY! I'll just make up my own version. FAIL. Well, not really. Sure, I made two sort of matching mittens that are cute. But they didn't turn out quite the way I wanted them to.
What did I do to make these mitts? Um. Can't tell you. I seriously was just knitting by the seat of my pants. And in the end, I'm pretty sure they are different. I'm pretty sure I'm the only one who would notice they are different, but different they are.
But all in all, I like 'em. Hope Steph likes 'em, too!
