2 - Mittens for Me
These were my first real try with colorwork. They were finally dry after blocking & I wore them for the first time today. Temps were way below zero & they kept me super warm.

I really like the detail up the sides & the way the pattern continues on the thumb. I had to make them longer than the pattern called for for my long hands so the decreases ended up being different colors instead of all red.

    • am glad your first attempt turned out so well. People do not realise that "coloourwork" is so much warmer…and easier to do than it looks.
