Thumbs up ~

Lucky for me, and for my sweetie, the two thumbs turned out to be the same!  Hurrah! I added a few more rows than the pattern called for, as I wanted to be sure that her thumbs had maximum coverage, yet still had breathing space.  Moments after casting off, I presented her with the finished mitts, and she took them on a test drive immediately, as she drove us home from her driver's education class wearing her newly knitted mitts, without the ends woven in..... 
 
After the ends were woven in, she gave the mitts another test and wore them while walking the neighbors dog, Lola. Check out that thumb! Lola thinks they are pretty cool, too!

You did great with the thumbs. Love the grey and red together- she did a good choice, your daughter. A nice project.
