I finished the “Bella” mittens, as inspired by the film Twilight, but they’re kind of a flop: Because I knit the first mitten while traveling, its cables weren’t even, which meant they didn’t match the second mitten. The first mitten’s top I had to extend to accommodate my fingers, but because of the cable length on the second one, that top worked OK–giving me mittens that are fraternal twins, not identical. But I’m not happy with my work on them, and overall, they’re a little snug.

Obviously, this is all my own fault, but it’s easy to blame Twilight itself. And the sort of “Was that it?” feeling I had when I finished these mittens is very, very similar to the feeling I had when I finished the book/movie. So I’m blaming Twilight.
