I feel so very accomplished for doing such a small thing. I knitted a mitten. A mitten. Singular.

But it's the first time I've ever finished a project (or, well, half a project). And it was exactly the right first project - small enough that it can be done quickly even by the most inexperienced learner, using only the most basic stitches but with useful techniques (markers, holding stitches, sewing) and of a nature that even imperfections don't matter, since they will probably still fit and will certenly be warm, and no one cares if mittens have a wrong stitch here and there.

BTW, I whipped the seam instead of backstitching. Was that right?
