doing my best to christmas knit i have two sets down. the brown pair of mitts came out too big for me I like my mitts snug even thought they will probably stretch out later. That puts me at a crossroads. should i make them big or make them snug and let them stretch out? I casted on 39 for the brown ones and feel they are too big. so i cut back to 32 sts and I love them. I tplan to make a black pair and a cream and black pair who all is getting these Tack and maybe Lela's teacher. Lela wants a set I want a set. the mitt pattern came from Bond Buzz 17 and the cowl is just the bond hat pattern with a few less rows and ribbing at the top.
