Mitten knittin'

13 back
13 palm

Today I mostly knit away at this mitten. I keep reminding myself that mittens should have some positive ease because this mitten looks huge to me. Part of why it looks so big is that it has a patterned cuff that looks like part of the hand so it looks longer than it is. I think it will fit the person I'm giving it to but it might be a roomy fit.

Once the 1x1 ribbing is done this is a remarkably quick knit. I should be able to easily finish this one and start on its mate tomorrow unless I get tired of them and go back to my sock or start the hat I still have to knit. Tune in tomorrow to see what happens!
