Recess for Grownups

I’m making progress on my WIP list. Project number five are these mittens for my brother using Annie Watts’ Recess for Grownups pattern.

The palm of the mittens

These feel like they’re taking forever, but that’s because I had to rip down a big chunk and go down a needle size. You can actually see how much wider they are in the ‘before’ picture. Redoing them did add a bit of extra time, but not that much in the grand scheme of things. And if I’m going to spend this much time on something I’d rather spend a little bit more, do it right, and have a wearable product in the end.
