What are you most proud of? Being sensible enough to rip back the first mitten after realising that the length given in the pattern was not going to be nearly long enough for my hands (not particularly wide hands, but long). I was tempted to make do - but didn't and the result is a perfect fit.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Get the square section needles. They are much more stable then round ones when knitting with so few stitches. Couldn't get the recommended ones (I'm in the UK) so I got wooden ones that worked beautifully.
