FO: a mitten!
I know this is silly, but I have finished a mitten for my son! I have been knitting for only a few months, but this is the first pattern I have used and the first thing besides a straight stockinette stitch scarf! It is not perfect, but it is done! I am so pleased and motivated!

Congrats on your first pattern FO. Isn't it a wonderful feeling making something nice for someone you love? By the way, I love that colour yarn.

I think it looks great. You should be very proud! I love doing mittens. I'm doing my second pair now. They're fun to do and sooooo necessary!!! I think I might end up knitting myself 12 dozen pairs! ;-)
