What are you most proud of? The colors came out beautifully. Side note* I had to start over on the right hand mitten. The second one came out perfect! When I unraveled the other mitten, I had a bit of a struggle, at least answering my concern about how well the mittens would hold up to my end weaving. These mittens won't be unraveling, so I guess that is something to be proud of,lol.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't work on them when you have sick family. I tried to work on mine while babysitting a sick grandson and my right hand mitten has a convertable top that is three stitches off from where it should be. It makes the thumb look like it sits in the middle of the hand. I haven't decided yet if I am going to rip it out and start the convertable top again or not. Also, if the mittens will be worn by someone who will need a washable mitten, be sure to work with only washable yarn. I didn't have a choice, as I couldn't find blue yarn in a washable blend.

thank you Sheila! I love the blues and gray together, I just wish I could have found a washable blue. Oh well, these are so soft, she is going to love them anyway!
