It's getting cold up here in Canada, which led to me the mitten section and that became my November project. The verdict is. I love this mitten pattern. I love the way the thumb is designed. Love that the mitten fits both Beri and Loo. Love the fact that it was such a quick project and Loo sat on my lap at the sewing machine for the first time and was pretty darn proud to announce to people that he made his mitten.
I put the elastic on the wrong side of the mitten instead of making the casing with bias tape over the mitten. This probably loses a few points in the comfortable factor, so I might follow the directions exactly next time. I'm also excited to make the matching hat.
Unfortunately he lost the other mitt at daycare a few days after we made them. Good thing I've got lots of extra fabric to make more. Any good ideas for attaching them? Maybe the good old string them through your coat with a piece of yarn method?
