Yep, convertible! I wanted a pair of mittens because I find mittens keep my hands much warmer than gloves. However... I play with my smart phone too much. And now that I stand at the bus stop or metro station I get bored and play with the phone. So I thought making a pair of convertible mitts would be perfect.
And they are perfect!
I've been wearing the mittens for about a month now and I can tell they are starting to pill and felt a little. I actually don't find felting... they will keep me even warmer. But the pilling? Hmmm... but still I love these mittens and wear them almost every day. They might only last this one winter season... only time will tell. The yarn is soft but might not have been made for such wear n' tear like mittens. Oh well, like I said, I love these mittens.
