Getting closer

I finished the body of the mitten last night! I am not sure I did the decreases properly, though. It just sort of says "decrease" and somehow the count ended up a little off so I had to tink or compensate. But overall I am happy. It needs a severe blocking after the thumb is knitted in. And to be honest, I was so worried about it being gigantic, but maybe it's a hair short! Funny. (Blocking.) Now I need to make the thumb and make another to match it.

So anyway, here it is so far! Click for a bigger view.

Top of the Mitten to you, sir!

And the rest of the mitt to you
