Mittens Schmittens.......

After finishing the Irish Hiking Scarf I wanted some mittens to go with it.
Sounds logical, even sounds pretty simple.

So why did I spend the weekend knitting a pair of ginormous mittens?

Something to do with ladies mittens not being big enough to not squash fingernails and me totally underestimating how much bigger mens mittens are.

No wonder I like Fetchings so much.........

I am so totally understanding! My very first pair of mittens were made with Cleckeaton's Gusto-10 and I used Kate Gilbert's Gifted pattern. After being teased on their size, they have been deemed oven mitts and are awaiting to be lined for use.

No wonder Fetchings are so fetching!
