I actually finished these back in June, a present for my best friend. The mittens are my own pattern, I just winged it really, considering I'd never made mittens before, let alone convertible ones. They turned out really great for a first time effort, but I fixed a few flaws in the pattern itself so next time I make these, they'll be perfect. Anyway. Done in Knit Pick's Shine in tan/turquiose/sand. The Windy City Scarf is from SnB and it was soooo simple and fast to make. Anywho.. here are some photos.

You know, I just finished making a pair of convertable mittens too, and when I got to the thumb (on the second of the pair, so it was too late to do much about it), I was wondering if you are supposed to knit the thumb all the way up, or leave it open. I am glad to see that someone else finished the thumb too!

yeah i wondered about the thumb thing too, but i have a pair (that i would DIE without, i loves them) that i bought from some random store years ago and they had the thumb, so i kind of modeled it after them, i guess. Smiley

and the funny part about these mittens is that i made them for my friend and couldn't fit them during the process (because she lives in minnesota, and i escaped that hell hole years ago.. but anyway) so i fit them to my hands, but forgot that i have TINY hands so they barely fit her. the first time she tried them on they broke. haha. so i had to end up cutting out stitches and kind of just sewing a loose binding.

thanks! i too am in love with the colors and the yarn is super nice feeling against skin (it's cotton), but it sucked to work with.
