Ok, the first mitten is done! It came out OK, but not great. I'll get a picture up soon. The thumb has a little hole in the little crease and I can tell where I was swithing from one needle to another because the stitches aren't even. But, for my first attempt I think I did pretty good. They will do just fine as running mittens. And it fits pretty well. I probably could have made the hand part just a little bit longer because the ribbed cuff comes up a little bit onto my palm.
I'm just knitting along lately! I like that I'm getting so much done, but I really do have to do that charity quilt. But can't make it to the fabric store until the hubby comes back from him conference. It'll get done though, it SHOULD be quick.
