First I knit a pair for a co-worker's birthday. I wanted to use up some of the odds and ends leftover from the crochet afghan I have been working on and decided to use a dash of blue in the red top of the mitt. This decision was mistake. The goal of the mitts is to have a garter ridge top to flip up and down. On the first pair, I have the woven ends on one side, which is visible if you flip the top up. Knitting fail.

On the second pair, the set for me, I learned my lesson and kept the color changes for the hand garter ribbing. I kind of love how the mitts turned out. The turned down top is so wonderfully squishy, too. I made my pair a large, but used the medium thumb size, which is prefect for me. Again, what is not to love about an easy pattern sharing your name. Much Love!
