Knitting in the round with DPNs

Wow, it's 2016 and I'm just now getting around to finishing this post that I started last year; well, better late than never!  So several months ago, I completed my first pair of fingerless gloves (or mitts) using double pointed needles (DPNs)!  I followed the Easy Fingerless Mitts tutorial by Staci Perry of Very Pink Knits which has great instructions if you've never used DPNs.  Not only was it my first time using DPNs, but also my first experience with knitting in the round.  But, with the tutorial, I didn't have any difficulty and finished the mitts within several days.  It's a quick item to knit up which could most likely be finished in a day if you wanted.  I used Red Heart Soft yarn in the color "Jeweltone".
