I'm happy to have these done, because it has gotten cold recently! These are the first mittens I've ever finished, which is hard to believe. Overall I'm happy with them, but if I make them again I would make them shorter. The pattern says that they should be 5.5" from the end of the thumb gusset to the end. Mine are 6" and 6.25" (more on that later), yet they are a good inch and a half longer than my hand.
Yarn: Cascade 220
Needle: Size 6
Mods: started decreases early on one mitten and ended decreases early on both
