Knitted Mittens - First Try

Knitted my first pair of mittens using Filatura Lanarota Kaleidoscope 100% extra fine Merino Wool (50 grams = 65 meters; color 009) on US size 8 needles.   In the last photo, the top mitten was just completed and the bottom mitten had been soaked in cold water to full the fibers.  The water soaking seemed to stretch the mitten out.  They may need some light felting but they feel oh so nice!
