One of These Things Is Not Like The Other

One of these things is not the same...got to love a Sesame Street Song, right?  Not when it applies to your knitting though.

I had been finishing up my Cotton Reel Mittens which I realized why I don't knit mittens - they are like socks.  You have to make two of them.  I went into finishing frenzy - stupidly during a really exciting playoff game between the Broncos and the Ravens.

I bound off the thumb, wove in the ends and put on the mitten.  It looked great, right!?

So then I got out the first mitten and put it on and realized something was wrong - one of these things is not like the other...see?

Too many stitches on the left hand mitten...grrr.  It went into timeout overnight and the next morning I got to work.

Painful but necessary.  After carefully paying attention to picking up the right number of stitches, I finished the second mitten.  Two of these things are the SAME!

And I'm done with mittens for a while!
