It fits well and looks pretty much how I want it to look. A day or two should be enough time to finish off the pair. Since we got a bunch of snow last night and there is more snow still to come I will probably even have a chance to wear them.
Before I wear them, though, they will need a couple of rinses at least to get rid of extra black dye. There is enough extra dye in the wool that it is coming off on my hand as I knit. I think as long as I wash the mittens in cool water I can get rid of the black without having it settle into the white.
I'll worry about it when the time comes, though. For now I'm just happy to have a nice mitten that fits and its mate in progress.
