Argh, me maties, the pirate mittens, they be done, yar, and me laddy young Henry be gleeful.
Lest some scallywag try to hornswaggle the mitts from my young swab, they are marked with the pirate's name and the date. Beware ye scurvies.
Fer ye maties who wished to know, the booty is knitted with Hauk, the yarn specified in the pattern, with 2.5mm needles at a tighter gauge than recommended in the pattern. Tis how this mama pirate managed to make them the right size for the particular intended pirate.
