Loved the look of these mittens and was determined to make them. However, when I finished the first one, it was too long for me. I couldn't wear a mitten that had so much extra length at the tip. So, rather than spending precious time on something I wouldn't wear, I ripped it all out! So sad. But I would really like to complete this project. Next time I'll try a smaller needle or may rethink the fingertip. However, that will have to wait for awhile until I tackle them again. I need a break.
