Pom Pom Mittens

Yes, I know it’s the wrong time of year to knit mittens but this kit was a present for my Birthday in December and I really struggled to start it. At times I didn’t understand the pattern, didn’t know how to increase, couldn’t visualise how what I was knitting would become a mitten…
Anyway, the first one (the left) took a while but the second one I started last night and have just finished it today!
