Thanks for the nice comments! Here's the other one. :happydance: Since this is just for me, I made the 2nd one with a rounder top so they aren't a perfect match. While making these I learned that you can't decrease at the same point though because it will create visible lines and random decreases really stink if you plan on writing it down to follow for next time. I also learned that when doing stripes it's best to have (or adapt) a pattern so that the thumb is knitted at the beginning of one and the end of the other so that new rows will fall in the palm of the mitten. --at least that's what I'm thinking at this hour. The picture's not that great and the lighting is bad at this hour.
BUT.... I'm very pleased with my new mittens and really could have used them for today's 10° run but they weren't done yet so I had to use my 1st 2-needle, mishapen, too-short ones that I made a while back that I (clear throat) use to be proud of too. :mrgreen:
