Mittens (or mitten I guess…)

Since I have a good amount of yarn spun up, I decided to try knitting with it- I used a bit of yarn left over from the beard hat for the pattern. The mitten is really nice and thick and they feel like they’ll be pretty warm.
The only problem is that the thickness of my yarn isn’t very consistent which made the mitten look a little sketchy (especially the thumb). Still, its good practice knitting in the round and doing a simple fair isle pattern. I’ve also learned to do knit one color in Continental style and the other in English style.
Anyways, the mittens aren’t pretty but they’ll be good for winter. Maybe they’ll look better after I block them?
