Oh, The Difference A Size Makes. . .
I was worried I'd run out of wool, so made the small size thinking I could stretch it. Nope - it was just too small. So I dug out some black wool from my stash and doubled it and made the cuff. I'm much happier with it and the second mitten is coming along nicely (turns out I have plenty of yarn - either the yarn band or the pattern lengths are wrong, but I like the black cuff so it's just fine.) This will be my first pair of mittens after doing lots of fingerless mitts and I really like the added warmth. Turns out thumbs are easy and worth the extra time. The pattern is Maize from TinCan Knits Now I may even stretch to gloves. . .
