Good basic pattern, and I am enjoying the knit! Here’s the backstory…
Mindy texted yesterday evening, saying that Peanut cried when she had to take off her wet gloves (from the store) and put on Gramma’s hand-knit mittens. Why? Because she likes “mittens like this” (see picture of her hands that Mindy sent with that message)…lol! So gloves it is!!! Super soft and warm using Cashmerino (sport wt.) at nearly the same gauge the pattern suggests for fingering.
Well, these look big to me…not going to reknit now. First I’ll see how much too big they are, then adjust. For now, I’m going to knit a matching hat!
