Love, love, love these mittens!!
The pattern, the colours and the soft feel of the yarn!
The cuff is double and if I am to knit this pattern again (which I think I will as I would love to have a pair in pink & brown), I might knit the whole mitten double to make them really thick and warm.
Pattern: Octopus Mittens by Emily Peters

As some of you know the first mitten got a little too small for me. So I was going to give them to Eirin. But I have knitted this second mitten with a looser tension...
So the mitten on the left fits me perfect and the one on the right is too narrow and a little too short *sigh* Blocking did't help either.
And there's no way I'll knit a third mitten to see if they will match in size, so I guess Eirin and I might have to share them ;)
