Starting off small though, I have one skein of Kroy Sock yarn in Flax. Not sure how it got here or why there is only one skein, when most pairs of socks take two skeins, but I started looking around Ravelry for what I could do with what I had.

Luckily I attended an excellent college, full of interesting people, who like languages! One of my acquaintances happens to be a bit of a linguist and does knit and crochet too. So, a huge Thank You goes out to Beth, who translated the pattern for me and then proceeded to test it as well.
|Next time I would start with a foundation single crochet. You can see the thumb opening here.|
|Finished mitt and finger opening. Arm detail next. Obvious where the thumb opening is. (it's the wonky rows)|

Anyway, the pattern used up just about all of the yarn perfectly, just like I hoped.
One less skein on the pile.
Time to complete: 6 hours
Difficulty: Easy +
Finished size: 10" long from hand to arm opening, a little less than 8 inches around un-stretched, but expands to fit over arm and hand nicely.
