Thanks, y'all! You guys have made me feel so good about it. I was thrilled with the little thing myself, and very pleased to be making some progress with my knitting. I feel like with each project I learn more and more - and even from the first mitten to the second I felt like I just learned so much!
Turns out I didn't have the right size needles to start the Christmas project I was going to start this afternoon, so I've started my next pair of little mittens. They are a bit addictive! :XX: :XX: :XX:
