Sweater Mittens

A while back (okay honestly in December I think), I went to a craft fair where they had some adorable sweater mittens, but I didn't have $30 to spend on a pair of them.  Sad day.  Instead I started scouring the web for a free pattern, but wasn't that surprised that I couldn't find one that worked well.  I did find a few, but they weren't very accurate and didn't make sense proportionally.  Five attempts later, I finally figured one out myself.

What do you think?  What should I do to make them better (or do you miraculously like them this way already)?  I'd love to hear your feedback!

The cuffs on the white pair turned out a lot better than than teal pair.  I'm still trying to figure out why and how to fix that so the wrist cuff lays flatter.  (I think they look a lot better on, but since I already mailed off this pair to my sister-in-law, I can't take any more pictures of them on to prove it to you.)

Some constructive criticism would really be great!  How would you want them changed if I were to send a pair to you?
