thanks to Ravelry
and the Works In Progress Wrestling event in the RavelOlympics!
I've decided I'm not good under knitting deadlines -- the thumbs could have been much better. I also duplicate stitched the one color on the middle of the sun pattern on the thumb, thinking it would be easier. Didn't like it much, and next time I'll just knit it in as I did for the rest of the mitten.
Live and learn, but these will get packed DONE, thank goodness!
