[knitting] Chicken Thumb Mittens

I made the best fitting mittens:

Chicken Thumb Mittens

Pattern: Fried Chicken Mittens (free on rav)

Why is the pattern called Fried Chicken Mittens? This diagram shows:

There is special shaping around the meatiest part of the chicken drumstick (in palm reading, this is the "Mount of Venus", or the female/love area of the palm). 

I would happily make this pattern again and again and again. The top is nicely rounded (not pointy) and I like that there is a distinct left vs. right mitten. If you want to make a pair of mittens, THIS is THE pattern to use.
