WIP: I GOTTA finish these mittens
I love doing mittens, but errr I tend to put off the thumbs...eek!

*I also make the wrist part a lot longer than the pattern tells me to - as a kid I just hATED the feeling of snow going down my wrists*

I agree about the cuffs. They have all kinds of fingerless gloves, why not thumbless mittens? For the thumbsucker is your life?

BEAUTIMOUS mittens!! LOL, I have to finish a thumb on my fingerless gloves, too...I don't know if I will ever be able to do actual gloves ! I am going to look for some ebony glove needles while we are on vacation. I know that you can order them, but I want to feel them
Oh, I agree that the wrists should be longer, too..I just think that they look nice
