What happens when you don't know your own gauge...
Same number of cast on stitches
Seriously. Even though I'd checked gauge before I started, my gauge was very super-tight in the first mitten. I loosened up TONS and that helped a lot in the second mitten. It fits very well.
I still think this is a gold medal, and I hope the Harlot thinks so too! It is a finished pair, down to weaving in and sewing up the hem. I'm going to keep the smaller mitten, and start another to match the big one (since I have LOTS of wool left). In fact, you can easily make two pairs of mittens from one skein of each colour (like I had).
