Rachel's mittens

So, friend Rachel commissioned me to make these mittens after seeing mine. I love making mittens!! The fingers are the trickiest part for me, but it's getting easier. I like to make the fingers different lengths so that they hit the finger in between knuckles.

I loved knitting these for her, since hot pink is not a color I regularly choose. I think they're adorable. My DH designed the "star" motif, since I was frustrating myself trying to do it. He saw my frustration and basically snatched the grid paper out of my hand... "Gimmee that..." and 2 minutes later had the cutest design made. Love him.
