1-5-2013 Mittens

This is my the first pair of mittens I've knit.

The one on the right was made according to the pattern
using the instructions for the women's medium
and was way too big for my hand.

The one on the left was made
with some tweaking of the pattern
and it fits perfectly!

So, I then unraveled and re-knit
the mitten that was too large...

...and I now have two mittens that fit perfectly!
I'm so happy that I have finally gotten to the point
where I understand how to change a pattern to suit me.
Makes me feel like a 'master knitter!'
Elizabeth Zimmerman would be proud!
