I finally finished my first set of really wearable mitts. They even match--one isn't longer than the other or anything!
Just call me Simpson! I'm not that yellow in real life.
This is the Spicy Homemaker Good Time Mitts (that's a .pdf link) with some tweaking to accommodate my freaky thumbs. I have weird, low-set, thumbs.
I really like this pattern. It's ridiculously easy and knits up super fast, even if you're like I am and only half know what you're doing.
My brother has requested a pair. His will have to be quite a bit larger, and I think I'll knit future mitts on US3 needles instead of US4; I'd like them to be more snug. And I think I want a green pair; I made these to use up a skein of leftover yarn. I'll leave them at work, though, because they're easy to type in and my office is cold.
