I think they came out pretty good for being my first attempts in years. The hat and one of the mittens came out better than the others because I was knitting those while attending a knitting class, so the instructor helped a lot. The other mitten came out with a big hole where the thumb and the body of the mitten meet but luckily, you can't see it! At least everything is wearable without it being embarrassing. That's a success in my book!
