I love the brown and pink combo.  Everytime you change colors, do you have to cut the yarn?

Yes, it is a good idea to cut the yarn when you switch colors. I leave about 6-8 inches, so i can sew them in at the end.

great job! especially for your first try! my first pair of mittens came out waaaaay too small! they were knit from the cuff up, and i had a heck of a time getting the size right cuz i *never ever* swatch my gauge. i'm not sure what kind of pattern you used, but i found this particular pattern *extremely* helpful, and easy to use, and you don't have to worry about sizing at all since it's knit from the top down and you can keep increasing as necessary, and i find the thumb looks a bit prettier with this method. just be sure to take notes of how many rows/stitches you knit as you go so both mittens will end up being the same size Wink

here's the pattern:

and here's a link to an explanation of the Figure 8 cast-on, in case you don't know what it is

i hope that helps to give you some motivation to make another pair of mittens again very soon - they are so fun and are a fairly quick knit!

marvellous job! Smiley

i have the pattern on a piece of paper... i will type it and post it when i get a chance. It is a very basic pattern, i like to funk it up by adding stripes, or even just changing the cuff color.
