I've been working on these forever now.  I actually had the glove part done for months and just have been dreading finishing weaving in all the ends and sewing on the little eyes.  The eyes didn't turn out well...I hate that duplicate stitch...maybe I don't do it right.  Sad  But I still think they turned out cute.  Smiley

Double finger warmth. Brilliant. There is an awful lot of work gone into those, well done.

Very nicely done! Does the mitten part slip on and off easily? I'd be worried it might fall off from a snowball fight or something.

Yea I actually haven't figured a way to attach it.  In the picture on the pattern it shows a button but it just didn't look right.

Isn't it funny that a designer can pull off something that looks good, but when you try to replicate it, it fails miserably??? I wonder why that is??  What if you sewed it while folded down on the back of the hand? That way you only see the stitching when it is open, instead of mittened-ized?

Great Job!
I am so thrilled you completed these! I have this pattern and it's always in the back of my mind to start. What kind of yarn did you use?

Yea I thought about sewing it to the back like you said.  Honestly, I'm just really sick of these and want to call them done. Smiley

I used KnitPick's Palette.  It's cheap and they had all the colors I needed.

Awesome!

I'm with you on the weaving in -- next to sewing up it's my least favorite part of knitting.
