I've been making all kinds of complicated projects lately, with lace and cables and fair isle. So I wanted to make something really easy and quick. These mittens are as simple as they get. No thumb increases, no pattern, just plain knitted mittens. And this also brings out the beautiful colors of the yarn in the best way.
And yes, one is bigger than the other. I always knit the second mitten/sock tighter than the first one. I guess it's because I knit faster once I get going and that makes me pull the yarn tighter, or something... It happens every time!
