The mittens are finished!
I am not sure why they took quite so long. Must have been all the reknitting. Even if they had taken twice as long I would be happy. Warm, unisex, and with the all important go-go-gadget thumbs.
The only change I made to the pattern was to knit longer cuffs. I like a nice long cuff that stays tucked in under a sweater or jacket.
When I cast on for the next pair I will remember to watch for twisted stitches when beginning the flap, mark the pick-up row with waste yarn, and not knit that row with bigger needles. That should take care of any further reknitting.
