Second try

The first mitten cuff was not knit to gauge.  I got 8 stitches per inch - the pattern called for 11.  I don't know if I've ever knit anything at that tight a gauge.

However, it made a mitten much too large.

Tonight I started again with size 0 needles.  1.75mm.  Toothpicks.  Definitely makes for a smaller mitten cuff.

But I'm not sure I'm enjoying the knitting as much.

I hate it when that happens! Love the colors and the patterning of the mitts, though. They'll be beautiful when finished, I don't doubt.
