Mitten knitters, see anything wrong with this photo? If you noticed that I hadn't left an opening for the thumb then you are a smarter knitter than I am.
I blew right through the directions where it says to put those stitches on some scrap yarn. You'd think it was my first ever pair of mittens but it's not. I've knit plenty. Plenty enough to know better. I had a nice afternoon of tedious ripping and tinking.
I could blame in on the Olympics or old age or Covid brain or anything but it was just me being stupid. I do that a lot these days. I did get it all back on track and the waste yarn knit into the right place but right now me and Mr. Mittens are not on speaking terms. A nice, long time out is probably in their future.
