Just look at those stitches!

I have finished the first mitt to the second set of komi mittens...and I love it!



I squared off the tip of the thumb and the top of the mitten, like I said I would do if I made another pair. I found the pattern actually makes them too pointy for me.

Look at these stitches...



They are near perfect...and they haven't even been blocked yet! The more I practice, the better I get. I have finished the cuff of the second mitt and have started the colour work. A complete pair is in the near future!
Thank goodness I saw a couple snow flakes fall today...I was about to drop this project and start something for spring with the balmy temperatures yesterday;)

Your tension is fabulous! No one would ever guess what a short time you've been doing this. Gorgeous mittens. I think the pointy ends are too pointy too. I'd square them too if it was me. Great job!

Great tension! Don't give up on the mittens for a month or so yet. We could have some more snow before Mother Nature says good bye to winter.

Your stitches really do look perfect! I wonder how you do it… I've been having problems with my stitches lately, so I'm quite envious! :-D
