I didn’t care much for the large amount of duplicate stitch (I really stink at it). If I were to knit it from the complete pattern, I’d just knit it with the colors as they came up. I really LOVE the mittens, though, and am very happy with them. I didn’t reach the 11 stitches per inch gauge, I ended up at 8.5 per inch. My hands are bigger, and they’re just a tiny bit roomy. I will get a lot of use out of these, as I’m keeping them for ME!
I need a better daylight picture. And, as luck has it, we may get snow in Minnesota tomorrow!
