Mittens made by knittins!

Huzzah! I have finished the mittens!

Pattern: Anemoi Mittens by Eunny Jang
Yarn: Jamieson's Shetland DK, 2 balls each in Natural and Seaweed (I think...the ball bands are in the other room)
Needles: I think the DK yarn was a bit thicker than what the pattern called for, so I used 2.25-mm instead of 2.5-mm needles to compensate. It kind of worked...the mittens are a bit narrow but nothing too painful.
Time: about 1 month for the right hand, 1 week for the left hand.
Mistakes: yes.
Mistakes that were corrected: most but not all.
Egads! Indeed.

Those are the coolest mittens! I can't believe how quickly you finished the second one. And just in time for this miserable weather we're having right now. I shall be quite jealous of you on the bus.
