Red Mitts--one done, one to frog

I completed the first red half-mitt and promptly cast on for the second using the wrong sized needle. Maybe this is why knitters suffer from second sock syndrome.

I'm pleased with how the first one turned out although having a gusset on only one side of the thumb will take some getting used to. It is a bit hard to see in the above photo but the gusset is located between the palm and the back of the hand on the left side of the mitten back.

Above is a palm view. Note no gusset on the palm which, surprisingly, doesn't adversely affect the fit. The color is washed out in this shot.

Cuff closeup, also washed out.
Other details are on my Ravelry project entry.
