I knit the thumb of mitten one. It was done.
It looked like some freakishly long thumb — I could fit my thumb in there.
So I ripped it out. I was already halfway done with the second mitten and I couldn’t take it any longer.
I followed the directions. I don’t understand where I went wrong. Perhaps I’m just not able to decode what is being said in the pattern.
My thinking was if I cannot figure out what the pattern is asking me to do, then I’ll steal the thumb off another pattern.
I should be able to finish the second mitt tonight. Then I’ll worry about these thumbs.
