Gregory`s gloves

Boy, am I on fire - second post today! It is quite a surprise to me as well, I never expected to finish my second project in one day, especially as I`ve never knitted gloves before! :) /I found the pattern here/.
Yesterday morning the Wee Man complained that his hands were cold and that was all his doting mother needed: within 36 hours, here`s the first pair of (probably, many?) mittens to keep those cute wee fingers toasty. And, you won`t believe this, but he actually likes them! Mostly because he can give the thumbs up in them...
Oh, dear, another `flashy` photo... anyway, they`re supposed to be blue.
I think the 10-row thumbs could`ve been just 8 rows but hey,
at least the child can grow into them, right?
(Provided he only grows his thumbs and not the rest of his hands...)

  2. Thank you, ladies, they are really nice and warm - and surprisingly glove-shaped for a first attempt! :)

  3. Very nice! I guess the flash turned them into grey, although they are supposed to be blue.))) Still, they look warm and cozy.

    1. This is the variegated blue sock yarn I bought a few weeks ago, Gregory picked this one from my stash. The gloves had their first trial run in the supermarket yesterday and the Wee Man was very chuffed that finally, for once, he wasn`t cold at the freezers, lol!
